Introduction Letter

From The Editor

In these unprecedented times, real-time business research is becoming more and more important as we continue to grapple with the impact of this global pandemic. Since our world has been turned upside down, Carlson School faculty members have used their expertise as a force for good as we search for answers to a number of difficult questions.

This all-virtual edition of Discovery at Carlson focuses solely on COVID-19 and the many areas of business and society changed as a result. You'll learn about what it’s like to be a labor economist today, why a business school is tracking hospitalizations across the U.S., how the world looks now for international entrepreneurs, and more.
