McCombs Professor David Harrison Inducted into Academy of Management Fellows
AUSTIN, Texas — McCombs School of Business Professor David Harrison was inducted into the Academy of Management (AOM) Fellows Group on Aug. 7, 2016, at the academy’s annual meeting. Harrison was among seven prestigious scholars elected this year.
The AOM has more than 18,000 members across 100 countries, and less than 1 percent of the AOM’s members is elected to the Fellows Group, which recognizes and honors those who have made significant contributions to the science and practice of management.
“It’s a really humbling honor to have my work recognized this way, given the work of others already in the Fellows,” said Harrison. “I’m lucky to have such terrific colleagues and students who have pushed our research to make a difference.”
Harrison has published over 100 articles, book chapters, editorial reviews, and papers on diversity in organizations, work role adjustment, time, and executive decision-making. In addition, he made Thomson Reuters’ 2015 list of Highly Cited Researchers, which selects the top 1 percent of researchers in each field.
Harrison has received many awards from AOM; honors include multiple Walter de Gruyter and Sage Best Paper awards from the Research Methods Division of the Academy of Management, the Carolyn Dexter International Best Paper award, the Saroj Parasuraman Award for Outstanding Publication in Gender and Diversity in Organizations.
“Dave’s induction as an Academy of Management Fellow highlights the significant contribution of Dave’s research to this field,” said Luis Martins, professor and chair of the management department at McCombs. “It recognizes him as one of the very best management scholars, and I am delighted that our students and colleagues at McCombs can benefit from his thought leadership and passion for his subject matter.”
Harrison is the Charles & Elizabeth Prothro Regents Chair of Business Administration in the department of management at the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin.
