Cambridge Judge Business School faculty are awarded Teaching Prizes and Faculty Activity Awards.
Six members of the Cambridge Judge Business School faculty were awarded Teaching Prizes for their teaching excellence across the School’s various programmes. In addition, three faculty members received Faculty Activity Awards for their participation in a variety of initiatives.
The awards were announced on 14 June by Dean Christoph Loch at a virtual “town hall” meeting.
These are the members of faculty honoured with Teaching Awards, with edited excerpts from remarks by Christoph (reflecting feedback from students and others):
- Othman Cole, Senior Faculty in Management Practice (Finance) and Deputy Director of the Executive MBA programme, for his teaching on the EMBA programme: “Othman has an excellent approach to linking theory with practice. He makes the subject very accessible in terms of understanding the concepts and then the application to different types of companies in different sectors.”
- Jennifer Howard-Grenville, Diageo Professor in Organisation Studies, for her teaching on the MPhil ISO programme: “Jennifer is a skilful and great lecturer very appreciated by the research MPhil students. The class is very interactive and she is very helpful. Jennifer does not only explain theory, but she values and uses our arguments to more fully elaborate the topic.”
- Alan Jagolinzer, Professor of Financial Accounting, for his teaching on the Masters in Finance programme: “Alan challenged our thought and understanding of various accounting concepts. He brought up intelligent topics for discussion and brainstorming. I like his way of leading us to think about and question the rationale behind the prevailing accounting rules, then proposing alternatives or better disclosures.”
- Jochem Kroezen, University Lecturer in International Business, for his teaching on the Executive Education programme: “Jochem has embraced new practices and pushed the boundaries of teaching in our open and custom programmes. Our clients and participants report how thought-provoking his sessions are, with a great flow and use of current industry examples to land key messages.”
- Thomas Roulet, University Senior Lecturer in Organisation Theory and Deputy Director of the MBA programme, for his teaching on the MBA programme: “Thomas’s tailored teaching approach created a safe space for students to speak up and ensured that they felt seen and heard. This along with engaging digital material and his witty approach created an open communication culture in class and excellent learning outcomes for the students.”
- Patrizia Vecchi, University Lecturer in Organisational Behaviour, for her teaching on the Master of Studies in Entrepreneurship programme: “We learned a lot in this class and the pace was perfect. It seemed organised for optimal learning, and webinars offered actual checkpoints and interesting discussion. If discussion went in a different direction, she was good at bringing it back to main points.”
The three faculty members awarded with Faculty Activity Awards were Jennifer Howard-Grenville, Diageo Professor in Organisation Studies; Kamal Munir, Reader in Strategy and Policy; and Jochen Runde, Professor of Economics & Organisation. In announcing these awards, Christoph noted their teaching across a variety of programmes, research, podcasts, online seminars and other activities that benefit Cambridge Judge. These Faculty Activity Awards come with a £3,000 contribution to the faculty members’ individual research projects.
