Two of “the most talented professors at UST” Honored with Achievement Awards

The Opus College of Business prides itself on the quality of its faculty. In keeping with this pride, two awards are presented annually to recognize faculty achievement.

The Julie Hays Teaching Award is given to an OCB faculty member for exemplary achievement in the classroom in the previous academic year. Awarded since 2010, the Hays Award was presented to James Shovein this month.

James Shovein“Professor Shovein is among the most talented professors at the University of St. Thomas,” wrote one nominating student. “He has a knack for bringing core concepts and real world experience together. His classes are not only enjoyable to attend but also make learning seem natural and easy while continually challenging and expecting the most out of students.”

The Susan E. Heckler Research Excellence Award recognizes outstanding faculty achievement in research. The Heckler Award was given for the first time in May 2012 to Dr. Avinash Malshe.

Avinash Malshe“His work stood out among a strong pool of candidates for its ability to contribute to both the academic discussions and provide real guidance to managers struggling with a difficult problems, such as designing and managing the interface between sales and marketing, another nominator wrote. “He exemplifies what we were hoping to honor with the Susan Heckler Award for Research Excellence”

Congratulations to these accomplished members of our faculty!
