ISU business faculty win awards 

Eric Girard, assistant professor, and Tarek Zaher, professor, both in the analytical department of ISU’s School of Business are the winners of the Best Paper Award from the Academy of Finance and Best Paper Award from the Academy of Financial Services.

Girard and Zaher will accept the Academy of Finance award this month at the academy conference in Chicago. A committee of finance academicians chose their article entitled, “Asymmetric Reverting Behavior of Stock Returns in MENA Capital Markets” among about 150 papers nominated.

In October, Girard and Zaher were recognized by the Academy of Financial Services at its conference in Toronto. A committee of finance professors from the United States reviewed about 150 papers and selected “Intertemporal Risk-Return Relationship in the Asian Markets Around the Asian Crisis,” written by Girard and Zaher for the best paper award.
