Brian Harney, Associate Professor at Dublin City University Business School has been selected as the 2020 recipient of the Academy of Management, HR Division Innovative Teaching Award for a curriculum innovation submission ‘Strategy-HRM Linkages: Enhancing Understanding through Practical Engagement with Small Firms’.
On an annual basis the HR Division of the Academy of Management makes a single competitive award to one of the Division’s 3,500 members. The award recognizes leaders who have “demonstrated innovation in the classroom and leadership in disseminating their innovations in the teaching of HRM. Special attention is given to methods that are developed as a result of interactions with the business community and those methods and designs that are widely disseminated”. Previous recipients of the award hold positions at institutions including Harvard University, Rutgers, and the University of Calgary. Brian is the first European recipient of this accolade, which has only been awarded outside of North America twice.
The award was announced virtually at a ceremony on Monday the 10th of August as part of the Annual Academy of Management Conference proceedings. The Academy of Management is the preeminent professional association for management and organisation scholars with a global community of 20,000 members across 120 countries.

Students always find this a challenging but ultimately transformative experience, I thank them for their dedication, effort and reflections”.
