A testament to the work ethic and quality of Mays faculty, Lamar Savings Professor of Finance Arvind Mahajan received the 2003 Bush Excellence in International Teaching Faculty Award.

Last year, the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation established awards in teaching and research to recognize exemplary contributions to students’ international education. Management Professor Lorraine Eden received the 2002 Research Award. Recipients receive a $2,500 gift.

Mahajan, who specializes in international and corporate finance, has taught for 24 years, serving at Mays for 22 of those years. He says the effects of globalization demand that future decision-makers understand other cultures, as well as the interaction between the domestic and foreign markets in which businesses operate.

“The opportunity to positively impact another person’s development and future makes teaching a profoundly serious, but incredibly exhilarating, activity,” says Mahajan, who has also received the Association of Former Students’ Distinguished Teaching Award during his tenure at Mays.
