Joint Appointment of Professor Christine Beckman in MOR

It is my distinct pleasure to let you know that, upon the recommendation of the MOR senior faculty and the deans, the Provost has approved a joint appointment of Professor Christine Beckman.

April 29, 2020

Christine currently holds the Price Family Chair in Social Innovation and is a Professor of Governance and Management at the Sol Price School of Public Policy at USC. Before joining the Price School in 2018, she was a Professor in the Department of Management and Organization at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland (2013-2019). She also taught at the Paul Merage School of Business of the University of California, Irvine, from 1999 until 2015, first as an Assistant Professor and then as an Associate Professor.

Christine is a widely-known and highly visible scholar in the field of Management and Organization. Her visibility is evident not only in her publication record that includes 13 top journal publications and a forthcoming research monograph at Stanford University Press, but also by her citation count of some 2,500 Web of Science and 7,000 Google Scholar citations. We have recruited Christine in the past, and while she eventually decided to join Price, her joint appointment further strengthen our connections with her.

Please join me in warmly welcoming Christine to the MOR community!
