Management Professor Honored for Lifetime Achievement in Research


Suffolk University Management Professor Michael Arthur received the Everett Hughes Award from the Academy of Management, Careers Division, for research over a lifetime in the careers area, in particular for the adoption of an interdisciplinary perspective.

Arthur was honored at the annual meeting of the Academy of Management held in Atlanta, Ga., in August 2006.

The Hughes Award, the highest award of the Careers Division, is given only when there is a nomination of sufficient merit.

In nominating Arthur, Professor Maury Peiperl, professor of leadership and strategic change at IMD in Switzerland and former chair of the Careers Division, said “Michael Arthur has been a clear leader in careers research and in linking this research to other fields, for some twenty-five years. He is surely one of the pre-eminent scholars of career management in the world. Many scholars' own work has been energized and transformed by Michael's inspiration and collegiality. He is an excellent mentor to aspiring career scholars from a variety of fields and, in particular, a variety of countries.”
