“She effectively communicated the relevance of the subject matter. She also did a great job including real-life experiences in the classrooms.”
“This professor is amazing – great professor!”
Those were just a few of the accolades directed at the School’s faculty during the Fall 2008 Graduate Programs Award Ceremony held Dec. 16. Students graduating from the School’s Full-Time MBA, Executive MBA and MBA for Working Professionals programs presented awards to their favorite professors at the ceremony which was held just a few days before commencement. Members of each class voted for an award, which was presented to the professor who made the most impact during their graduate program.
Students themselves also received awards during the ceremony. Linda Neider, vice dean for undergraduate business programs and a professor of management, inducted 13 students into the Beta of Florida Chapter of the Beta Gamma Sigma Honorary Business Scholarship Society. Those invited achieved a grade point average of 3.9 or higher during the program. Also presented during the ceremony – one each in each class – was a Valedictorian Award, a Leadership Award and a Super Glue Award.

The special ceremony, the first of what is expected to become a school tradition, was developed to celebrate the achievement that the successful completion of a graduate business program represents.
“Along with your family and friends, I had no doubt you would make it,” said Neider, recalling how at the start of the program, commencement seemed so far away.
“To your spouses and your families, we officially return your weekends,” said Mehrotra, referencing the weekend schedule of the Executive MBA and Working Professionals programs.
