A poster presented by Master of Science in Engineering Management graduate Myra Zhinin G'18 and Assistant Professor of Business Information Systems Charles Mutigwe recently won first place in the poster competition at the International Conference on Industrial Engineering & Operations Management, which was held in Washington, DC, on September 27-29.

As part of her cross-disciplinary program, Myra took two College of Business courses with Dr. Mutigwe (Information Technology Management & Applications and Enterprise Analytics with SAP), which formed the basis for the poster, which was titled "The Case for a Unified Query Language."

Myra attended the conference through the support of her employer, NORESCO, and presented the poster. She and Dr. Mutigwe are exploring developing a journal paper based on the poster.
