Each year, the graduating Rady School of Management MBA cohorts honor their favorite professors who guided and enriched their experience throughout the course of the two-year MBA program. The annual Teaching Awards serve as an opportunity to acknowledge the top-tier education and counseling Rady School faculty provide their students.
The awards are separated into two categories – Most Valuable Professor and Excellence in Teaching. Four professors received Most Valuable Professor, and one professor earned the Excellence in Teaching award from both the Flex and Full-Time cohort.
