Spring 2009 Fellows


The Banta Center is pleased to announce the launch of our Graduate Research Fellowship Program. This new program will be instrumental in developing more robust intellectual resources for distribution among the Center’s major academic and professional audiences. Three distinguished MBA students from the School of Business were selected for the Spring 2009 fellowship: Debbie Eytchison, Andrea Scott and James Muren.

Debbie Eytchison received her B.S. in Business and Management from the University of Redlands and returned to the University of Redlands to begin work on her MBA. Outstanding among her many achievements is Debbie’s first place performance in the National Contract Management Association (NCMA) W. Gregor Macfarlan Excellence in Contract Management Research and Writing Program. In 2008 she presented her winning paper at the NCMA World Congress in Cincinnati, Ohio. The paper was subsequently published in the 2008 issue of Journal of Contract Management.

Andrea Scott received her B.S. in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting and her B.A. in Business Administration with an emphasis in Information Systems Management from California State University, San Bernardino. She has served as president of the Accounting Association and the Academic Honor Society of Beta Alpha Psi. Of particular note, is her successful 2004 team representation in the Business Ethics Fortnight Intercollegiate Competition held at Loyola Marymount University.

James Muren graduated from University of Maryland University College (UMUC) in 2004 with a Bachelors degree in computer science and completes his MBA at the University of Redlands this spring. Having performed critical research functions in the field of information technology including consulting applications of his findings, he brings great experience and a significant competency for performing complex research projects involving highly technical threads.

The Banta Center extends its warm welcome to each of our distinguished research fellows.
