I am honored to receive this year's "Outstanding World Executive MBA Faculty Award," especially since it was my first time teaching in the GW WEMBA program. Thanks so much to the WEMBA students--I really enjoyed meeting all of you and the great discussions we had in- and outside the classroom!
I have just received notice from the GWSB Doctoral Student Association that I have been nominated for this year's Peter B. Vaill Outstanding Doctoral Educator Award!
This represents my fourth nomination in the six years I've been here at GW (including winning this award in 2014). Thanks to our doctoral students for nominating me again!
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!
This week, I accepted Markus Kreutzer's kind invitation to join him and his colleagues for the European Business School's Annual Off-Site Doctoral Workshop at Kloster Johannisberg in the beautiful Rhine Valley.
Besides the inevitable sightseeing and wine tasting, I learned a lot about the impressive research the EBS doctoral students are conducting. So thanks for having me!
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.
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.
Just returned from teaching a session on "Social Network/Social Capital Theory" in Kennesaw State University's DBA program.
Thanks to Torsten Pieper for inviting me and to the KSU doctoral students for having such an engaged conversation with me on social networks/social capital and research in general.
Just returned from teaching a section of my long-time friend and colleague Franz Kellermanns' doctoral seminar on "Designing Effective Organizations" at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, TN.
Thanks to the UT doctoral students for having me and to Franz and his lovely wife Laura for hosting me at their beautiful home!
According to the most recent specialty ranking from Bloomberg Businessweek, the George Washington University School of Business's international business curriculum for undergraduates is ranked 8th in the nation, and the corporate strategy program (which I am part of teaching with my capstone on strategic management) is ranked 21st in the nation.

I just returned from a week in Tokyo where I joined my Master of International Management (MIM) students on the first part of their Asia Study Tour.And it was an amazing experience, both personally and professionally. The program mixed lectures by Japanese managers on Japanese business history and production methods (just-in-time etc.) and company visits with social events, like a dinner with MIM alumni at a traditional Japanese restaurant
Check out the MIM website for more information.
Thanks to Cliff Allen and Jeff Millard for their generous invitation!
