Irwin Outstanding Educator Award

The Irwin Outstanding Educator Award (created in 1987) recognizes a scholar who has demonstrated a long term commitment to and expertise in educating Strategy students. The award alternates each year between Ph.D./doctoral education and MBA/executive education. In even years like this one, STR evaluates nominees with respect to their contributions to MBA/executive education in strategic management, including evidence of outstanding teaching capabilities, an important impact on teaching pedagogy, and/or a deep passion about the subject.
