This year, students named individual professors for teaching in each of the MBA for Executives program’s three focus areas—healthcare, sustainability, and asset management—as well as citing a professor for core curriculum teaching.

Lorenzo Caliendo, associate professor of economics, won the award for the core. “I am so honored to be recognized by these current and future leaders,” Caliendo said.

Among the program’s focus area winners, Kysar, the Joseph M. Field ’55 Professor of Law, won the Award for Teaching in Sustainability. “I feel incredibly fortunate to have had the chance to work with the 2017 sustainability cohort,” Kysar said. “Every professor’s dream is to walk into a classroom of sharp, talented, caring, and fun individuals. This group made that dream come true for me."

Forman, professor of radiology, public health, and management, won the Award for Teaching in Healthcare. “Being at Yale affords one the opportunity to teach the best and brightest students,” Forman said. “With our MBA for Executives students, you have the extra bonus of interacting with students who are already leaders in their field.”

William N. Goetzmann, Edwin J. Beinecke Professor of Finance and Management Studies and director of the International Center for Finance, won the Award for Teaching in Asset Management. Goetzmann thanked the students: “I’m thrilled by this wonderful recognition... I love teaching EMBA students and learn an enormous amount from them.”
