Faculty Members Earn Top Honors

June 18, 2014

Dr. Barbara Gross received the Marketing Educator of the Year award, a recognition conferred by the Marketing Educators’ Association Conference at its 2014 conference.  The California Society of Certified Public Accountants conferred its prestigious 2014 Outstanding Educator Award on Rafi Efrat at CalCPA’s annual meeting on June 19 at the Renaissance Palm Spring Hotel.  It is hardly necessary to elaborate on the incredible honor it is to be chosen from the hundreds of accounting educators at top universities throughout California.  Institutional Investor Journals, a consortium of a dozen of the most influential scholarly journals in the finance discipline, bestowed their 2013 ETF/Indexing Paper of the Year award – one of the very few recognitions in the academic-research domain that recognizes a paper as being the best not just in one journal but across multiple publications – on Drs. James Chong and G. Michael Phillips for “Low (Economic) Volatility Investing,” which appeared in The Journal of Wealth Management.  Additionally, Dr. Sung Wook Yoon’s “Goodwill Accounting and Asymmetric Timeliness of Earnings” was recognized by the editorial team of Review of Accounting and Finance as that journal’s Outstanding Paper of 2013, Dr. Julia Hoch’s “Vertical and Shared Leadership Processes: Exploring Team Leadership Dynamics” was judged as a best paper in the Organizational Behavior Division of the 2014 Academy of Management Meeting, to be held in Philadelphia in August, and Dr. Gerard Rossy’s novel case, about an NGO in Afghanistan that teaches youth in that troubled country to skateboard, was named the best sports case by the Western Case Writers Association.
