Indian Academy of Management 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award

On December 19, 2017, Professor Vasanthi Srinivasan of the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, and president of the Indian Academy of Management (INDAM), presented Farok Contractor, Distinguished Professor at Rutgers University Business School, with a Lifetime Achievement Award at a dinner ceremony during INDAM’s 5th Biennial Conference December 18–20, 2017 in Indore, India.

INDAM, a branch of the US-based Academy of Management, conferred the award “In recognition of achievements and contributions to management research.” Dr D.M. Pestonjee of Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University, Gandhinagar, was likewise honored at the dinner.

Rutgers will also be publishing a notice in its upcoming newsletter.

10,000 Publication Citations

Coincidentally, at about the same time he received the award, Farok’s citation count reached a career milestone: other scholars have cited his academic papers and books 10,000 times. Modestly, he said, “Of course, one or two other colleagues, like John Cantwell [also of Rutgers], have even more.”

At a party given by his Rutgers Business School colleagues Ajai Gaur and Deeksha Singh, Farok was honored along with three other colleagues who achieved the same 10,000-citation milestone:

Jonathan Doh of Villanova University School of Business and Arvind Parkhe and Shreeram (Ram) Mudambi of Temple University Fox School of Business.

Congratulations to all, and especially to Farok!
