Ben Yeo, assistant professor of management, wrote an article, “What Drives University Technological Innovation Outcomes? A re-Vitalized Investigation,” that has been published in the Journal of Information and Knowledge Management. The abstract of his study begins, "Universities are a source of technological innovation, which in turn facilitates economic growth. The Bayh–Dole Act of 1980 was enacted to support university research efforts. However, since its enactment, university technological innovation had been increasing slowly."

Yeo’s teaching areas are information systems and data mining. His research interests include the impact of technology and innovation on industry and regional performance, as well as issues related to IT workers, using primarily statistical and data mining methods. In addition, he has also conducted research investigating corporate social responsibility and mobile advertising.
