Congratulations, Dr. Aguinis!

November 08, 2017

Herman Aguinis, Avram Tucker Distinguished Scholar and professor management, has been appointed Deputy Dean of the Fellows of the Academy of Management (AOM).

The AOM is the preeminent professional association for management and organization scholars. Its members are professors and PhD students in business schools at universities, academics in related social science and other fields, and practitioners who value knowledge creation and application. Founded in 1936, the AOM currently has nearly 20,000 members, from more than 120 countries.

Becoming a Fellow of the Academy of Management is a significant honor, as the total of AOM Fellows is capped at one percent of the academy’s membership. As deputy dean, Dr. Aguinis will have responsibility for conducting the election of new fellows.

“As you can imagine, this is an amazing honor—and responsibility,” Dr. Aguinis said. “I anticipate that my role as deputy dean of the AOM Fellows will require quite a bit of time and effort on my part. But, I decided to accept it because this role will be accompanied with tremendous visibility and benefits for GWSB.”
