Professor Frank Rothaermel has an impressive resume. The Russell B. and Nancy H. McDonough Chair in Business and Sloan Industry Studies Fellow at the Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business is identified as one of the “world’s most influential scientific minds” by Thomson Reuters. The Kauffman Foundation lists him as one of the world’s 75 thought leaders in entrepreneurship and innovation.
This year, Rothaermel can add one more recognition to his curriculum vitae, as he’s been named one of the “Favorite Professors of the MBA Class of 2022” by Poets&Quants.
The online publication covers U.S. and international business schools, rankings, high-achieving students in undergraduate and MBA programs, and other management education topics. Each year, they ask MBA students to submit the names of their favorite professors for consideration for the ‘Favorite Faculty’ award. Among thousands of professors teaching MBAs across the world, Poets&Quants selects 50 outstanding professors.
MBA Class of 2022 grad Francesca Sally, who is now a consultant at Bain & Company, had this to say about her experience in Rothaermel’s core strategy course:
“Professor Rothaermel did a tremendous job navigating the virtual environment and ensuring that the classes were engaging, kept the daily discussions up-to-date with international news, and applied the principles we were learning to problems that were unfolding in the world around us. Half of his course was a practicum, so it was extremely helpful to spend the second half of class working with a real company. My group partnered with Autodesk, and immediately applied what he had taught us to the case that our client presented to us. Professor Rothaermel also continued to support the students, engage with us through professional development events, and encourage us in our career pursuits after the course ended,” said Sally.
In addition to Scheller, other esteemed business school faculty recognized hail from Booth, Cambridge, INSEAD, Kellogg, Oxford, Ross, Sloan, Stanford, Tuck, Wharton, and Yale, to name a few.
