LOS ANGELES (June 3, 2014) - UCLA Anderson School of Management Dean Judy Olian and Faculty Chairman Randolph Bucklin today will present the annual faculty awards, which honor excellence in teaching, research, leadership and mentorship.

Three faculty members will receive teaching awards, selected by the Teaching Improvement Committee, which consists of UCLA Anderson faculty Bob Foster, Mark Garmaise, Kevin McCardle, Daniel Oppenheimer and Jenessa Shapiro. The winners are:  

  • Dean George W. Robbins Assistant Professor Teaching Award: N. Bugra Ozel, who teaches the FEMBA Financial Accounting core course.
  • Citibank Teaching Award: Noah Goldstein, who teaches the Leadership Foundations and Organizational Behavior core and a special class on Persuasion and Influence.
  • Neidorf "Decade" Teaching Award: Carla Hayn, who teaches Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting and Corporate Finance and Accounting, and also serves as senior associate dean for the FEMBA and EMBA programs.

This year's Eric and "E" Juline Faculty Excellence in Research Award, which honors outstanding research among assistant professors, goes to Guillaume Roels. Some of Roels's research interests include supply-chain management and service-operations. Roels, who was recently promoted to associate professor with tenure, was selected as the recipient of the Juline Award by the Research Committee, comprised of UCLA Anderson faculty Steven Lippman, Francis Longstaff and Margaret Shih.  

Professor Kevin McCardle has been selected as the winner of this year's J. Clayburn La Force Faculty Leadership Award, which honors outstanding service by faculty. McCardle has served as senior associate dean for the MBA program (2007-2010) and chaired the Academic Senate Charges Committee (2011-2013). He currently serves on the Faculty Executive Committee, chairs the curriculum subcommittee, and is deeply involved in serving the community as chair of the Board of the Saint Joseph Center. McCardle was selected by the La Force Award Committee, comprised of UCLA Anderson faculty Charles Corbett, Carla Hayn and John Mamer.  

Two additional awards will be presented to a faculty member and a student in the Ph.D. program. Professor Richard Roll will receive the 2014 Dean's Prize for Outstanding Faculty Mentorship of Ph.D. Students, in recognition of his decades of mentorship and the excellent placement of his students. Graduating Ph.D. student Paul Hoban will receive Xavier Drèze Prize for 2014, which was established in honor of the late Prof. Drèze and recognizes the most outstanding research paper by a Ph.D. student.
