In Service to the State

Brad Price, associate professor of management information systems, was named to the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business' 2024 Class of Influential Leaders. This distinction honors “AACSB-accredited business school faculty demonstrating impact through their research.” The AACSB is the Chambers College’s accrediting body. 

Price’s research has supported WVU’s land grant mission in many fields, including COVID-19 vaccine distribution, rural healthcare and the opioid epidemic. In looking for cutting-edge solutions to practical problems, Price has exemplified what it means to serve the state and its people. 

“I want my work to have impact years before it reaches a journal,” Price said as part of his presentation at AACSB’s International Conference and Annual Meeting held April 15 in Atlanta, Ga.
