There is a lot to celebrate during the month of May at UNB: spring, Encaenia, the beginning of new journeys and careers. In the faculty of management, we also like to pay tribute to our professors by awarding teaching and research awards to those who have made outstanding contributions. Hats off to the following recipients of our 2023 teaching and research awards:

Faculty of Management Excellence in Teaching Award

Recipients of the Teaching Award are selected annually by faculty of management students and alumni. This year they chose to recognize Dr. Hsin-Chen Lin. Lin is a member of the marketing area and teaches principles of marketing, global marketing, and social media marketing. Growing up in Taiwan and completing her PhD studies in the United States influenced her research interests in researching cross-cultural studies. Her research focuses on understanding how word-of-mouth, sponsorship, and social media marketing affect brand equity according to national cultures and countries. Her social media marketing course is popular for its experiential learning projects where students work with local businesses to plan and execute social media campaigns.
