During Emory’s Earth Week celebration, Allison Burdette, assistant professor in the practice of business law, received the Emory University 2007 Sustainability Innovators Award for Innovation in Faculty and Student Education and Research. She was honored for the dinner and discussion series she developed last year on global climate change. The first evening in the series addressed the science of global climate change and media response to it; the second examined the law and politics of global climate change. Forty students and faculty members participated. The series was so successful that it will continue this fall, when it will address global health and business issues.

O&M professors Russ Coff and Richard Makadok won the 2007 Glueck Best Paper Award for the Business Policy and Strategy Division of the Academy of Management for their paper titled, “Both market and hierarchy: An incentive-systems theory of hybrid governance forms.” The paper was judged via two rounds of blind review and named the No. 1 paper out of a total of 655 papers submitted.

Last spring, marketing doctoral students Rodrigo Guesalaga and Martha (Myslinski) Tipton attended the Trans-Atlantic Doctoral Conference at the London Business School, which brings together about 100 students from the top US and European business schools to discuss their dissertation research ideas. All students present their work in both professional and social forums. The students were the first in Goizueta’s five-year-old doctoral program to be invited to attend the elite conference.

Arun Mohan 06MBA-07MD collaborated on an initiative that ranked in the top 50 of American Express’s Members Project 2007. Drawing more than 7500 applications, the contest called for projects with a positive impact in the world. Mohan’s suggestion was to make prescription cards available on a public website. These cards would use both pictures and simple terms to list a patient’s medications and how and why they should be taken.

BBA students Eric Duchon, Sarah Arison, Xiaoyang Chen, and David Feldman, along with instructor Reshma Shah, far left, accept the prize for the team’s first place win.

Goizueta BBA students placed first in a national competition among college students to create an integrated marketing campaign for the Subaru Impreza line. After advancing to the final round of competition, the student delegation from Reshma H. Shah’s Integrated Marketing Communication class (pictured above) presented senior executives at Subaru headquarters in New Jersey, including its CEO, COO, and CMO, a campaign entitled “Drive with Character.” Subaru executives said they were very impressed with the class’s creativity and the high degree of integration of its campaign.
