In 2011, Jim Nolen was named one of the most popular b-school professors in the entire nation by Bloomberg Businessweek. Now he is receiving yet another honor, as the McCombs School of Business is establishing the Jim Nolen Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching. Starting in the Fall of 2014, the award will be given annually to a deserving McCombs professor.
During his 32-year tenure at the McCombs School of Business, Professor Nolen made a tremendous impact in the lives of over 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Several of these former students have been very instrumental in the efforts to establish the teaching award in his name.
Nolen says he was very surprised by the outpouring of support and pledges. We wish to extend a heartfelt congratulations to Jim for receiving this honor!
