Nabarun Ghose, D.B.A., a professor of marketing and business at The University of Findlay, has been named a regional recipient of the 2015 Accreditation Council for Business Schools & Programs Teaching Excellence Award.
Ghose, who also won this award in 2006, will be honored at the ACBSP’s June conference in Philadelphia, Pa. As a regional recipient, Ghose is now a candidate for the international award.
“Teaching is Dr. Ghose’s passion. He devotes enormous amounts of time working individually with students on exceptionally exciting experiential learning opportunities,” said Paul Sears, UF’s College of Business dean. “For five consecutive years, Dr. Ghose organized and led a study tour to India which included student participation in a three-to-five day Global Business Networking Conference for top-notch Indian business organizations and executives from companies like Ford India, Apollo Hospitals, GE Healthcare India, etc. These trips were life changing for the dozens of students who were able to take advantage of them,” Dr. Sears said.
In 2002, the Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Commission created an International Teaching Excellence Award to recognize excellence in teaching at the baccalaureate/graduate degree level. ACBSP is the only specialized body for business schools that presents an award recognizing excellence in teaching, open to application by the entire membership.
Ghose also won this regional award in 2006. Other UF College of Business recipients have included Shiv Gupta, Josephine Kershaw and Patricia Abels. Kershaw and Abels went on to receive the Council’s International Teaching Excellence Award.
“There is no other ACBSP institution in the country with a track record of achievement in terms of recognition of teaching excellence comparable to the track record that UF has earned since 2006,” Sears said.
“It is more important than ever for business programs to produce graduates who are ready to enter the global marketplace,” said Jeffrey Alderman, ACBSP Chief Executive Officer. “ACBSP has a mission to develop, promote and recognize best practices that contribute to continuous improvement of business education. Recognition of teaching excellence is one way we achieve this goal,” he stated.
