Student Business Concept Accepted for E3 Conference Poster Session

Student Corey Oney with Assistant Professor of Management Qian Xiao

Professional Flight student, Corey Oney from Olive Hill, Ky. continues to “fly high” even in non-aviation academic pursuits.

According to Assistant Professor of Management, Dr. Qian Xiao, students in her MGT 301-Principles of Management for Non-business Majors were required to prepare a project relevant to business concept creation.

Oney's project, “Daisy Barrel Co.”, focused on bourbon and wine barrels - specifically, the barrel shortage. Based on its merits, Oney’s project was one of a handful selected for possible presentation at the November 19th Education and Entrepreneurship as Economic Engines conference (E3), hosted on EKU's campus. To Oney’s credit, his business concept proposal was accepted by the Kentucky E3 Conference.

To showcase the student presentations, E3 leadership gave all selectees a 15 minute block time to discuss their posters during the afternoon conference session.  Additionally, the selected posters were on display all morning in the Atrium outside of the Black Box in the Center for the Arts.

The Kentucky E3 Conference is presented in partnership with the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education and is designed to align the goals of the modern university and complement the disruptive environment in which higher education competes. Find out more at
