Cutting edge research and innovation in teaching have been recognized by IESE this month.

Professors Víctor Martínez de Albéniz, Gaizka Ormazabal, Heinrich Liechtenstein and Rob Johnson have received the Research Excellence Awards 2014, which will be presented by the IESE Members Association in February.

The awards were made for two academic articles published in journals of operations and control respectively; and for an original MBA course in finance for entrepreneurs delivered over 2013-2014:


Research With International Prestige and Social Impact

The jury, comprising professors and members of the Association’s executive committee, selected the two articles on the basis of their international prestige.

The winning course met with a broad range of criteria: an established course, taught over successive years; its usefulness in terms of research and consulting; its social impact; and the use of original and specific material.

The Research Excellence Awards were established in 2001 and are presented annually, with a bursary of €10,000 for each winner.

This year’s awards will be presented on February 9 at the Members Association Governing Council on IESE’s Barcelona campus, and celebrated simultaneously at the Madrid campus via video-conferencing.
