Santiago Ambroggio, a senior entrepreneurship major, received the Best Paper Award at the Academy of Business Research summer conference, held in Boston, Massachusetts. He was recognized for his paper entitled “Unearthing the Roots of Creativity: A Study of the Environmental Factors Impacting Creativity Development,” co-authored with Ralph Griffith, associate professor of entrepreneurship and director of the Center for Commercial and Social Entrepreneurship, Gordon Cappelletty, associate professor of psychology and chair of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, and Janelly Rosales, graduate student. 

In collaboration for student-faculty research, Ralph Griffith (left), works with Santiago Ambroggio (right) on his project.

Their paper analyzed how three different factors interrelated with creativity development. If researchers better understood the foundations of creativity, then this would have a large impact on the pedagogy of disciplines such as entrepreneurship, design, innovation, and other related fields. The study focused on various environmental factors that played a role and correlated with creative development. The group's key form of research came from the 30 circles exercise, which was used to measure and determine the level of creativity in participants. 

Ambroggio and Griffith gave their award lecture at the conference, where the goal was to exchange ideas and collaborate in a conference setting with international scholars and practitioners. Best paper awards were voted during each session of the conference.
