Poets&Quants has named Professor Alex Edmans MBA Professor of the Year! He received this award for his pioneering research in corporate social responsibility; for his impact and influence on hundreds of MBA students; and for his exhaustive efforts to disseminate research to not only business practitioners but a much wider audience.
"He has taken a personal body of research and converted it into something that has impact across three key communities: the academic community where he continues to be a leading light in producing top-quality research, his student community where he uses that research to teach key concepts around finance and responsibility, and the practitioner community where he’s had a real influence on policy and practice around the responsible business agenda," says Tom Gosling, Executive Fellow of Finance at LBS, a position that connects the academic research of LBS faculty with corporate leaders.
"I just don’t see many people having that balanced of an impact across those three constituencies, with each one feeding off the other in a very successful way. I think that’s quite an inspirational model for other people in the profession."
