Babson Faculty Members Shine at Academy of Management Annual Meeting
More than two dozen Babson faculty presented on topics ranging from entrepreneurship research to healthcare innovation and sustainability at the 83rd Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management (AOM) in Boston.
Heidi Neck, the Jeffry A. Timmons Professor of Entrepreneurial Studies at Babson, delivered the keynote address at the Teaching and Learning Conference (TLC@AOM), “The Entrepreneurial Educator,” discussing her five-part methodology for helping educators of all kinds better engage, inspire, and connect with students.
Babson faculty members also hosted nearly 200 guests at an open house event Sunday at the Hynes Convention Center. Colleagues across the academy connected with each other and were welcomed by Babson faculty.
Four Babson faculty members were recognized by AOM for their scholarship and service:
