Mauro F. Guillén wins Faculty Pioneer Award from Aspen Institute
Press author Mauro F. Guillen has been awarded a coveted Faculty Pioneer Award from The Aspen Institute inWashingtonDC.
Dubbed “the Oscars of the business school world” by the Financial Times, these awards celebrate educators who demonstrate leadership and risk-taking. Selection criteria for this year’s awards were designed with a very specific objective in mind: to identify and recognize faculty who are ensuring that their students examine critically the purpose of the corporation.
Professor Guillen of the Universityof Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, is the co-author of three recent Press books: Global Turning Points (2012), The New Multinationals: Spanish Firms in a Global Context (2010), and The Rise of Spanish Multinationals (2005).
This year’s Faculty Pioneer Award Winners and Finalists, were formally recognized at the Aspen Business & Society Symposium Award Ceremony on September 26 inNew York.
In announcing the awards, Judith Samuelson, Aspen Business & Society Program executive director said: “To be prepared for the complex challenges they will face in their careers, today’s business students must examine basic assumptions about what role business can and should play in society. It is no longer adequate – or accurate – to say business simply has to create value for shareholders. This year’s winners and finalists are exceptional because they require students to wrestle with broad questions about the primary responsibilities of business.”
Paula Parish, Senior Commissioning Editor for Business and Management said: “We are delighted that Mauro Guillen’s energy, talent and commitment to education have been recognized in this award. Professor Guillen is an ‘educator’ in the very broadest sense of the word, contributing frequently to public debate on the opportunities and challenges of the global economy, mentoring executives working in some of the world’s most ground-breaking industries, whilst creating innovative programs in international business and political economy at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.”
