The IM Division FIU Business Emerging Scholar Award recognizes the contribution to international management scholarship by a junior scholar, defined by having completed their Ph.D. (or equivalent) within the previous eight years, at the time of nomination. The award is selected by the division's Professional Awards Committee, chaired by the Past Division Chair and consisting of the three past chairs and two recent winners of the IM Division Hyundai Motor Eminent Scholar Award. Nominations for this award are solicited from the IM Division Membership each year in the spring. This year the committee was comprised of Katherine Xin (Chair, 2022 IM Division Chair), Don Lessard (2022 Eminent Scholar), Rosalie Tung (2021 Eminent Scholar), Jaeyong Song (2021 IM Division Chair) and Anu Phene (2020 IM Division Chair). The IM Division thanks them for their fantastic efforts overseeing our division's professional awards selection process. The division is very grateful to FIU Business for the sponsorship of this award. Sponsors like FIU Business are essential to the effective functioning of our division, and greatly appreciated.
