We are currently developing a research project that examines how social media, particularly Twitter, and traditional media influence different aspects of entrepreneurial firms.

For such a big project, we are looking for motivated undergraduate research assistants to assist our study. Primary areas that the students will work on are data collection and literature review.

There are several benefits of being part of our project. First, students will have a great opportunity to involve with research and prepare for graduate programs. Second, they will learn about the topic in depth. Lastly, students will receive MGMT 499 credits.

For those who are interested in a longer commitment (more than two quarters), and who demonstrate ability and interest, can have the opportunities to be involved in other interesting projects, developing their own projects and data management/analysis.

Please contact David Park (upark[at] for more information.


Minimum number of hours/week: 6 (2 credits)
Although being able to commit six hours per week is the only requirement, there are several other preferred, but not required, skills/experiences: 1) junior standing or above; 2) working knowledge of UW libraries online research database; 3) prior research experience.
