Dr. Carolyn Egri, a professor of management and organization studies at the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University, has been announced as the recipient of the David L. Bradford Outstanding Educator Award for 2012 from the Organizational Behaviour Teaching Society for Management Educators (OBTS).
The OBTS aims to enhance the quality and promote the importance of teaching and learning across the management disciplines with a focus on the dynamics within and at the interface of individuals, groups and organizations and cultures.
The award, named after David L. Bradford, the founder of OBTS, recognizes an individual or group demonstrating lifetime achievement with a focus on teaching and learning excellence, who impacts the field as a whole, with their innovations and ideas extending to a wide audience. Egri will be presented with the award at the Organizational Behaviour Teaching Conference, to be held in June 2012 at Brock University.
Egri has taught in the EMBA program for over two decades, and is a past winner of SFU’s TD Canada Trust Distinguished Teaching Award, the highest teaching honour of its kind at the Beedie School. The Bradford award comes after Egri was recently named the Beedie School of Business’s inaugural William J.A. Rowe EMBA Alumni Professor.
In addition to teaching leadership at the EMBA level as well as sustainability and research methodologies classes in the Segal Graduate School, Egri has also contributed substantially to OBTS, having been a member since 1988, and serving on the Board of Directors from 1995-1998.
Egri is currently an Associate Editor for Academy of Management Learning & Education, and is a past Chair of the Organizations and the Natural Environment Division of the Academy of Management.
