Kysar, the Joseph M. Field ’55 Professor of Law at Yale Law School, won the sustainability focus area award for the seventh time.

“When my colleagues at the law school ask me why I choose to teach extra classes in the EMBA program, I tell them they have no idea how rewarding it can be to work with people at this stage in their lives and careers, with this much brilliance and experience, and this level of dedication to advancing themselves and their world,” Kysar said.

Garten, dean emeritus and Juan Trippe Professor in the Practice Emeritus of International Trade, Finance, and Businesswon the asset management focus area award. Garten previously won the award in 2018, 2020, and 2022.

“I’m totally honored to have been selected for a teaching award,” Garten said. “Truth is, I learned at least as much from my extraordinary students as they did from me.”

Pinker, deputy dean for strategy and BearingPoint Professor of Operations Researchwon the award for teaching in the healthcare focus area. He previously won the award in 2019, 2020, and 2021.

“It is a great honor to have one's teaching to be appreciated by such an impressive group as the EMBA Healthcare track students,” Pinker said. “They are already leaders in their fields and heading to great things.”

Ibbotson, professor in the practice emeritus of finance, won the Legacy Educator Award, an informal recognition honoring his many years of service to the EMBA program.

“I have been teaching at Yale SOM for 40 years, and in the EMBA program for 14 years,” Ibbotson said. “It has been an amazing journey, and I will continue to treasure the dedicated and enthusiastic colleagues and students I have had the opportunity to engage with over the years.”
