Regents’ Professor of Marketing Dan Robertson was honored in a retirement reception this spring in advance of his planned August departure from Mays. As part of the accolades to commemorate his 24-year career at Texas A&M, the Outstanding MBA Faculty Award was renamed in Robertson’s honor — a gift sponsored by $2,500 in donations from fellow marketing professors.

Robertson joined the business school in 1981 as head of the marketing department, and was assistant and later associate dean in the 1980s. The influential educator, a passionate Aggie fan and a story-teller at heart, shepherded students and ideas through the MBA program, the six areas of study towards a master’s degree and the entire undergraduate program during his years as associate dean. He was director of all graduate programs for Texas A&M for six years beginning in 1992. From 2000 to 2003, Robertson again directed the MBA program, in mid-2003 joining A&M’s Office of Graduate Studies as assistant dean.

Friends and former students are invited to honor Dan by supporting the Dan H. Robertson Outstanding MBA Faculty Award. Cash gifts of any amount are welcome to help fund the award, given annually to recognize and enhance the efforts of a noted MBA faculty member. For more information and to donate, contact David Hicks, director of development, at 979-845-2904 or david.hicks@tamu.edu.
