Special Mention

Paul Beamish has been recognized as one of the top 100 most influential Strategy authors and Jane Howell (Emeritus) has made the top 100 most influential General Management authors in an article that’s forthcoming in the Academy of Management Learning & Education. The article, A Pluralist Conceptualization of Scholarly Impact in Management Education: Students as Stakeholders, by H. Aguinis, R.S. Ramani, N.Alabduljader, J. Bailey and J. Lee, examines the most influential authors in organizational behavior (OB), human resource management (HRM), Strategy, and General Management as cited in textbooks.

This is excellent news for both Paul and Jane, congratulations to both!

On a Practical Note...

Case Funding - Sustainability

Have a potential case on Sustainability? Will it be registered with Ivey Publishing by July 31, 2019?

If the answer is yes to both of these questions, please apply for funding through the Case Writing Request form, clearly stating this is a sustainability case. Also touch base with Tima Bansal to ensure she agrees about the potential fit of the case.

There is an opportunity for one additional case to be funded through the Building Sustainable Value Centre/RBC Foundation funding in the current fiscal only.
