Tuesday, May 14, 2013

LAWRENCE — Four business professors at the University of Kansas have earned the 2013 Guy O. and Rosa Lee Mabry Best Paper Awards.

The annual awards recognize the year’s top published articles by KU business faculty.

Andrew Chen, associate professor of information systems, was honored for his article, “Can Online Wait Be Managed? The Effect of Filler Interfaces and Presentation Modes on Perceived Waiting Time Online,” which appeared in MIS Quarterly in June 2012.

Crown/Sherr Professor of Business Mike Ettredge picked up the award for “Earnings Restatements and Differential Timeliness of Accounting Conservatism,” which appeared in the Journal of Accounting and Economics in 2012.

Jay Lee, associate professor in organizational behavior, earned the Best Paper Award for “Cognitive Team Diversity and Individual Team Member Creativity: A Cross-Level Interaction,” an article published in Academy of Management Journal in 2012.

Assistant finance professor Felix Meschke received recognition for “Structural Models and Endogeneity In Corporate Finance: The Link Between Managerial Ownership and Corporate Performance,” which appeared in a 2012 edition of Journal of Financial Economics.

The Mabry Best Paper Awards were designed by the school’s research, evaluation and development (RED) team and receive funding by an endowed gift from KU business alumnus Guy Mabry.

The selections were made by an ad hoc committee of the previous year’s winners appointed by the research, evaluation and development team. The awardees were honored by Dean Bendapudi at the May 10 faculty assembly.
