Catherine Tucker

MIT Sloan Professor Catherine Tucker was recently was awarded the 2013 Paul E. Green Award from the American Marketing Association (AMA). The annual award honors the Journal of Marketing Research article that demonstrates the most potential to contribute significantly to the practice of marketing research. Tucker’s winning paper, which was co-authored with Anja Lambrecht (London Business School), is entitled: “When Does Retargeting Work? Information Specificity in Online Advertising.” The award was presented at the AMA’s Summer Marketing Educators’ Conference held in San Francisco on August 2, 2014.

Earlier this year, Tucker was also noted by Poets & Quants as one of “40 under 40 most outstanding business school professors in the world.” And, in 2013, received the Jamieson Prize for Excellence in Teaching. In addition, Tucker has received the Garfield Economic Impact Award for her work on electronic medical records and a National Science Foundation CAREER Award for her work on digital privacy. The Oxford, England native has also presented to the U.S. House of Representatives’ Energy and Commerce Committee and the European Union’s Future of Privacy Forum.

MIT Sloan Professor John Van Maanen is the recipient of the 2014 Distinguished Scholar-Practitioner Award, an Academy of Management (AOM) Career Achievement Award. Nominated by Academy members for his dual contributions to management scholarship and practice, the award is given to “the practitioner-scholar whose sense of inquiry and pursuit of knowledge have risen above ‘just doing’ to using practice-based learning to influence theory and research-based theory to influence practice.” 

The award committee noted his work’s originality and depth, as well as the continuing commitment Van Maanen has made to understanding the experiences of organizational members—particularly through his “insightful tales from the field and rigorous qualitative methods.”

This lifetime achievement award is a reflection of the esteem held by both practitioners and academics for Van Maanen’s seminal work in qualitative research in management/organization studies and for his accomplishments in terms of acceptance. Van Maanen received this prestigious award on August 3, in Philadelphia, PA, at the AOM Annual Meeting.

MIT Sloan has received more AOM Distinguished Scholar-Practitioner Awards than any other institution, with a total of four winners in the past six years. Previous MIT Sloan winners are: Edgar Schein, 2009; Thomas Kochan, 2010; and Lotte Bailyn, 2012.
