PNC Center sponsored research wins the prestigious 2017 Informs/Organization Science dissertation proposal competition award

Evelyn Zhang's work, "Intra-Organizational Mobility: Movers, Incumbents, and Communication Networks,” was awarded the runner-up to the prestigious best 2017 Informs/Organization Science dissertation proposal. This is a highly competitive award where eight finalists were selected out of a group of nearly sixty submissions from across the world based on evaluations by blind reviewers. Finalists presented their dissertation proposals to a distinguished panel of judges at the INFORMS Annual Conference in Houston, TX in November 2017.  The judges awarded Evelyn Zhang's work based on quality, potential contribution and innovativeness.

This work is based on PNC data and was supported by the PNC Center under the project "Exploring the Network Characteristics & Attrition of Top Performers at PNC," by Brandy Aven and Evelyn Zhang.
