Ivey professor wins Outstanding Education Award
London Community News
Paul Beamish, a professor at the Richard Ivey Business School at Western University, was presented with the International Management Outstanding Education Award by the Academy of Management earlier this month.
Beamish was nominated for the award by seven of his peers from business schools around the world for his continuous excellence and innovation in international management education at all levels. This includes contributions on pedagogy, the training of other teachers and the global dissemination of international management knowledge.
“Professor Beamish continues to raise the bar for faculty everywhere,” said Carol Stephenson, dean of the Ivey School, adding this is a significant achievement. “There are few people who combine such an extensive research record, while also serving as a mentor and advisor for doctoral students and contributing to education in so many ways.”
Throughout his career, Beamish has contributed to the development of international business scholars by supervising 27 successful PhD candidates.
His research record includes the publication of more than 100 published peer-reviewed articles, many in top-tier journals. He has also published 32 other articles, 54 books (including numerous case and textbooks) and 30 book chapters.
He served as the editor-in-chief of the Journal of International Business Studies and has actively served on or serves on more than 20 editorial boards.
Since becoming the director of Ivey Publishing in 1999, the institution has become the second largest case distributor in the world and the largest distributor of Asian management cases, under Beamish’s watchful eye. He has also authored more than 120 cases himself, of which 17 have been recognized as top-ten best sellers.
Turning his expertise and energy towards the support of some of the world’s poorest nations, Ivey Publishing established the 39 Country Initiative in 2010, which provides business cases and teaching material at no cost to business schools in the 39 poorest countries, including Haiti, Ghana and Rwanda.
Beamish has served as a faculty member at the Richard Ivey School of Business for 25 years and is the founding director of both the Ivey Asian Management Institute and Ivey’s Engaging Emerging Markets Research Centre. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Academy of International Business and Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada.
