Strategy + Business Magazine Promotes Dr. Mousa's Research


Fariss MousaRecently, Matt Palmquist from Strategy + Business Magazine wrote a commentary on research conducted by CoB Management professor Dr. Fariss Mousa.

Dr. Mousa’s research, titled “The Impact of Slack Resources on High-Tech IPOs,” was published in Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice in September of 2013. In the article, Mousa and his co-author Dr. Richard Reed, examine the impact of slack resources on the initial public offering (IPO) valuations of high-tech firms. The authors found that certain types of slack resources affect IPO values by sending a signal of company quality to investors.

This research offers interesting insight for practitioners, managers, and investors within the industry—insight that can be shared with a much broader audience now that Strategy + Business Magazine has helped to publicize Mousa’s research.
