EMBA Class of 2023 Selects Winners of Annual Teaching Awards

Students honored faculty who teach in the integrated core curriculum and in each of the MBA for Executives program’s three focus areas.

Professors Lorenzo Caliendo, Stefano Giglio, Howard Forman, and Doug Kysar are the winners of this year’s MBA for Executives Teaching Awards, selected in a vote by the EMBA Class of 2023.

Lorenzo Caliendo

Caliendo, the Won Park Hahn Professor of Global Affairs and Management and professor of economics, was honored for his teaching in the integrated core curriculum. Caliendo, who is also deputy dean of the Jackson School of Global Affairs, teaches the core course The Global Macroeconomy. He previously won the award in 2014, 2017, and 2021, and also has been honored for his teaching in the full-time MBA program three times, including this year.  

Stefano Giglio

Giglio, a professor of finance, won the award for teaching in the asset management focus area. “I am thrilled and honored to have won this award,” he said. “I have been lucky to teach this EMBA class several courses, and their passion and engagement throughout has contributed to a great learning experience. I am grateful for this wonderful recognition.”

Howard Forman

Forman won the award for the healthcare focus area, for which he is faculty director. A co-founder of the MBA for Executives program, Forman is a professor of diagnostic radiology, economics, and public health and professor in the practice of management, and also directs Yale’s MD-MBA joint degree program.

“In my 25 years of teaching at Yale and 22 years of teaching at SOM, I have learned a lot from my students and felt enormously privileged to exchange ideas with them,” he said. “We all are rewarded every day in the lecture room, but I still deeply appreciate this additional acknowledgment from the students.”

Doug Kysar

Doug Kysar, the Joseph M. Field ’55 Professor of Law at Yale Law School, won the award for the sustainability focus area for the sixth time. “EMBA students are brilliant, ambitious, and uncommonly hard-working, but they are also kind, fun, and deeply self-aware,” he said. “Working with EMBA students is quite simply one of the most enjoyable and inspiring teaching experiences a person can have.”
