 Hundley, Rau Receive Young Faculty Scholar Awards
THIS YEAR'S John and Mary Willis Young Faculty Awards went to Greg Hundley, associate professor of management and recently appointed director of the Center for International Business Education, and Raghavendra Rau, assistant professor of management.  The two received honors at the school's annual picnic this spring.

"These awards are very valuable to us, since they recognize and reward young faculty who demonstrate outstanding achievement in research,"  says Bob Plante, Krannert senior associate dean.

Rau's current research areas are in the fields of empirical corporate finance and the economics of information.  His focus in information economics is centered on the acquisition and utilization of information by participants in a market framework.  In the area of empirical corporate finance, he is investigating the market reactions to corporate events such as mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures. 

"I find this interesting because I like trying to work out what makes people tick; why they might react the way they do," Rau says.  

Rau, who also received the Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Award admits to being surprised at winning two awards  and says when his name was announced for the Young Faculty Scholar Award, he thought he had not hear correctly.

Hundley says he too was not expecting the award, "I was surprised, but pleased that my research was recognized, and encouraged to continue my research agenda."  

Hundley has been at Krannert for four years.

"I really enjoy teaching in the Krannert graduate programs and my ongoing interaction with highly capable, motivated students," Hundley says. "I especially enjoy learning from graduates that what they have learned from my classes and others here at Krannert has truly made a difference in their careers and lives."
