Member Spotlight: Mary Crossan

Winner of the 2023 Distinguished Educator Award

When Mary Crossan was an undergraduate student at Western University, she was a varsity volleyball player with hopes to become a physical education teacher. By happenstance, she enrolled in a business course, and her career trajectory changed. “Back in the day, business courses were not mainstream anywhere. It wasn’t in high schools and because I had no exposure to business, I never even thought about it. When I took that class, I thought this is pretty intriguing.”


Taking that business course opened the door to new possibilities and led her to eventually pursue an MBA and PhD from Western University’s Ivey Business School, where Mary is now a Distinguished University Professor– Western University’s highest honor recognizing excellence in teaching, research, and service over a substantial career. Nominated based on recognition of her many achievements and pedagogical innovations, especially to develop leader character, Mary Crossan is the winner of the 2023 Distinguished Educator Award, presented during the Annual Meeting in August 2023.


“For me winning the award is incredibly special and humbling. I think it says to people like me, who don’t necessarily fit a particular mold, that you can make a difference in the academic profession. I have often pioneered new research areas and pursued innovative teaching methods in a very inter-disciplinary fashion. Ivey is a place where I have learned with, and from my colleagues about the synergistic effect of teaching, research and practice - domains often seen as in tension, whereas the synergies can be so enlightening and inspiring.”

AOM Member Dr Xue Zhou Receives High Commendations At The 2023 British Academy Of Management (BAM) Awards


The British Academy of Management made a series of awards during their 37th annual conference at the University of Sussex, to celebrate outstanding contributions made by business and management scholars, not just through their research but also the important contributions to society they have made.


Dr Patrick McGurk and Dr Xue Zhou were highly commended for their project titled ‘Transforming BSc Business Management for Inclusion through Authentic Learning and Peer-Led Teaching and Learning’. The project aimed to address inequalities in student outcomes of the School of Business and Management, BSc Business Management program.


“Together we’ve achieved profound impact – through peer-led team learning, the performance of students who originally entered the University with BTEC qualifications rose by an outstanding 16.7%. This just begins to demonstrate the power of partnership and evidence-based pedagogies to advance equity. Fueled by our progress, we’ll continue working tirelessly to help all students gain the skills, confidence and community to excel. This recognition affirms we’re on the right path. Guided by inclusivity, our journey continues.”
