Last fall, Anita McGahan received the inaugural
Education Impact Award from the Strategic Management
Society at its annual conference in Paris.
The new award will be given annually to an individual
who has made an exemplary contribution in
the teaching of strategic management. McGahan is
a professor of strategic management at the University
of Toronto's Rotman School of Management in
Ontario, Canada. She is also the George E. Connell

region. The award, presented by research platforms
Wharton Research Data Services and the Social
Science Research Network, recognizes emerging
business schools that are increasing the impact of
their faculty's research.
