At the opening of their annual meeting’s plenary session on June 26, 2007, the Fellows of the Academy of International Business (AIB) presented Executive Dean Joyce J. Elam with this year’s International Dean of the Year Award. As such, she joins an elite list of deans from top international business schools around the world who have received the award in past years.
“This singular honor recognizes all Elam has done to foster international business education at the university and elsewhere,” said Chapman School Dean José de la Torre, an AIB Fellow and leading international business scholar.
Newly elected to the cadre of AIB fellows this year is Mary Ann Von Glinow, professor, Management and International Business Department and director of the college’s Center for International Business Education and Research.

“The past four years have been a tremendous ride for us in international business in both our undergraduate and graduate programs,” said Sumit Kundu, Knight Ridder Research Professor of International Business and associate professor, Management and International Business. “I’m proud to be part of this great institution and intend to contribute more to help us reach more milestones in international business.”
Kundu contributed four papers and gave a panel presentation at the AIB conference in Indianapolis.
