Five members of the Cambridge Judge faculty are awarded teaching prizes for excellence across the Business School’s various programmes.

Five members of the Cambridge Judge Business School faculty were presented with Teaching Awards on 1 June 2023 for their teaching excellence across a range of the Business School’s programmes. 

The awards were announced by Professor Mauro Guillén, then Dean of Cambridge Judge. Here are excerpts of the award citations, reflecting feedback from students and others: 

MBA programme award winner

Gishan Dissanaike

Adam Smith Professor of Corporate Governance

I think he's an excellent lecturer. He uses lecture time correctly to challenge students further.

Gishan made corporate finance accessible, and while it was challenging it felt like a fun puzzle.

Gishan delivered hard and complicated stuff in a very simple manner. I enjoyed his classes a lot.

Executive MBA programme award winner

Kamiar Mohaddes

Associate Professor in Economics & Policy

Kamiar Mohaddes.
Dr Kamiar Mohaddes

Kamiar taught Macroeconomics to the EMBA class. He managed to make a very complicated subject simple to understand and relate to. His lectures are always well-structured, well-articulated, and simplified.

He introduced complicated mathematical formulas, but managed to explain them in a brilliant way.

MPhil programmes award winner

Khaled (Khal) Soufani

Management Practice Professor of Financial Economics & Policy

Students on the MPhil in Technology Policy thanked Khal for a very interesting module. His expert knowledge and communication with the audience is very engaging.

Khal brought many new perspectives and insights on the concept of circular economy to the class, and used business cases to explain the circular economy model.

Kishore Sengupta

Professor of Operations Management

Kishore is anything but a transactional academic programme director – he gives so generously of his time and advice. His ultimate goal is to make sure the programmes he directs are rigorous and impactful – his attention to detail is a joy to behold!

I really like working with such a dedicated member of faculty, whose commitment to the Business School and his programmes is stellar.
