Ave Tucker Fellowship

Thrilled to share that I have recently been awarded a two-year Ave Tucker Fellowship at George Washington University’s School of Business.

Named after George Washington University’s Board of Trustee member Avram S. Tucker, this fellowship recognizes faculty members who "displayed good teaching performance, as well as recent scholarly productivity, prospects for continued publications in top outlets, and records of research leadership and mentoring of junior scholars."

Thanks to the Executive Committee for bestowing this great honor on me!

Executive MBA in St. Gallen


Just returned from teaching my first Executive MBA seminar at the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland. Besides feeling nostalgic about returning to my Alma Mater after more than 10 years, I was very impressed with the university’s executive education program as well as with the qualifications, experience, and interest of the attending executives.

Many thanks to my former doctoral adviser, Günter Müller-Stewens, for inviting me and to the executives for having me. I look forward to coming back next week for my second seminar.

Peter B. Vaill Outstanding Doctoral Educator Award

I just received notice that, after being nominated twice (in 2011 and 2013), I was awarded the 2014 Peter B. Vaill Outstanding Doctoral Educator Award by the Doctoral Student Association of the School of Business of The George Washington University.

A sincere thanks to the doctoral students for this honor. I look forward to many more opportunities to engage with the GWSB doctoral program…
