Dean Andy Lockett presented Maja Korica with an award for Outstanding Contribution to Teaching at the WBS Summer Party.
The Associate Professor was nominated by students for her commitment and quality teaching, particularly on the Critical Issues in Management and Managerial Work and Practice modules on the Undergraduate programme. The latter module, Managerial Work and Practice, which she runs and co-teaches with Davide Nicolini, also received a near perfect feedback score from students this year – one of the highest on the school’s Undergraduate programmes across the board.
Dr Korica, who was this year named on the prestigious Thinkers50 Radar list that gathers the 30 academics most likely to shape the future of how organisations are managed, has brought her ethnographic studies of how healthcare CEOs manage their organisations and how public sector boards of directors work in practice, to the classroom.
Undergraduate Yacine Radi Benjelloun said: “Her delivery during lectures was outstanding. They were well thought out in terms of structure and content, making the audience focused and entertained.
