Behavioral Business Research Lab
The BBRL is a world class behavioral business research facility in the Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas. Behavioral researchers use the facility to study a wide variety of business and economic topics including strategic behavior, worker-employer relations, information processing, group problem solving, and decision making under uncertainty.
A Resource for Research
The Walton Research Laboratory in the Center for Academic Excellence is an interdisciplinary resource for studying human behavior and decision making. The laboratory allows researchers to test current theories in business and economics and provide an empirical basis for the development of new theories.
The facility enables several different types of research experiments.For example, the break out rooms enable researchers to study group dynamics, group decision making, communication, and distributed tasks. This impacts everything from jury deliberations to directing focus groups for new products, and from managing companies with offices across the globe to developing information systems.
Key components of the lab include:
- Large computer lab
- Small computer lab
- Series of focus group rooms
- Series of breakout rooms
- Large shopper insights area
- State of the art observation room
- Conference room
All researchers must have IRB approval
All researchers and experiments MUST have Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval prior to being conducted. A hardcopy must then be provided to a BBRL administrator to be kept on record. For more information on the IRB please visit their website.
