Two faculty members at Carleton University’s Sprott School of Business were awarded achievement awards by the university in recognition of their outstanding contributions to research and teaching.

Isaac Otchere, Professor, Finance
2021 Research Achievement Award

Isaac OtchereIn recent times many firms with unsustainable business practices are being excluded from the investment portfolios of environmentally and ethically focused public investors. While this is meant to be a punishment for their environmental sins, little is known about the effectiveness of this strategy in actually changing corporate behaviours because other investors could fill this void. Through his project, The Price of Environmental Sin, Isaac is examining this effectiveness and researching if it does indeed force the excluded firms to become more environmentally sustainable.

The Research Achievement Awards are administered by the Office of the Vice-President (Research and International) to recognize exceptional accomplishments by members of Carleton University.

Andrew Webb, Assistant Professor, International Business
2021 Teaching Achievement Award

Andrew leads the Sprott Student Consulting Group (SSCG), which allows students to enroll in an experiential learning course and undertake a real-life business project while working directly with a range of clients including local businesses, non-for-profit organizations and international corporations. Now he’s undertaking a teaching development project to build on the success of the SSCG by designing and implementing a new student-led management team for the group. This initiative will provide high impact management learning opportunities to the students and will effectively create a unique and cutting-edge student-driven service-learning program.

The Teaching Achievement Awards are administered by the Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) and are intended to enhance the teaching of their recipients and the quality of instruction at the university.
