Beedie School adds new EMBA professorship
Carolyn Egri, a professor of management and organization studies is the Beedie School of Business inaugural William J.A. Rowe EMBA Alumni Professor. The new professorship’s role is to promote excellence in research and teaching.
A past winner of the school’s TD Canada Trust Distinguished Teaching Award, Egri has taught in the executive MBA program for more than two decades. She recently received the 2012 David L. Bradford Outstanding Educator Award from the Organizational Behavior Teaching Society for Management Educators.
“This professorship has been funded by generous contributions from EMBA alumni, and there is no doubt that Carolyn is a most worthy recipient as an outstanding scholar and for her contributions to the development of the EMBA program,” says Beedie School dean Daniel Shapiro.
The professorship is named for the late William Rowe, and SFU EMBA alumnus, in honour of his significant contributions to the university.
