The IM Division Outstanding Service to the Global Community Award recognizes continuous excellence in serving the international community. While the IM Division provides opportunities to serve the global community, this is not an award for service to our division. Rather, the award scope is sufficiently broad to recognize service made via many organizations, including international institutions, governments, and/or non-governmental organizations. The award favors longstanding service, but impactful service in a concentrated period of time will also be considered.
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 William Newburry (Chair, 2023 IM Division Chair), Tatiana Kostova (2023 Eminent Scholar), Don Lessard (2022 Eminent Scholar), Katherine Xin (2022 IM Division Chair) and Jaeyong Song (2021 IM Division Chair). The IM Division thanks them for their fantastic efforts overseeing our division's professional awards selection process.
We are pleased to announce that Elizabeth L. Rose of Indian Institute of Management Udaipur has been selected as the recipient of the 2024 IM Division Outstanding Service to the Global Community Award! Please join us at the International Management Division Awards & Recognition Session during the 2024 AOM Meeting tentatively scheduled for Monday, August 7 where Dr. Rose will be recognized.

Elizabeth L. Rose is Research Chair Professor of Business Policy and Strategy at the Indian Institute of Management Udaipur, having previously worked in New Zealand, the US, the UK, and Finland.

She is especially interested in the internationalization activities of firms from emerging markets. Beth is a Fellow of the Academy of International Business (AIB) and the Australia and New Zealand International Business Academy (ANZIBA). She was named the 2019 Woman of the Year by the Women of the AIB (WAIB).
Beth has held leadership roles in several academic professional organizations, including the AIB, the Strategic Management Society, and the Academy of Management. These roles have given her the opportunity to work with academic associations, especially in Africa and South Asia, where she has enjoyed engaging with junior scholars to develop and extend their research capabilities.
Currently, Beth is Co-Editor-in-Chief of Academy of Management Collections, a member of the senior editorial team of Journal of International Business Studies, and the Associate Editor of AIB Insights.
