Since its inauguration, the SMS has developed several awards programs to recognize
and honor those who have made significant contributions to the theory and practice of
strategic management. By recognizing special contributions to the field, we validate what
we define as excellence. Through these programs, the SMS distinguishes emerging
scholars in the field, business leaders that have demonstrated strategic leadership and
innovation, articles published that have notable impacts in the field, and authors of
outstanding academic work submitted to a conference. Each of these awards is targeted
toward people and research that moves the study of strategic management forward.
With his strong publication record across the field’s major journals, as well as his ability to ask important questions and identify novel mechanisms to unify corporate and international strategy research, we are excited to announce Exequiel Hernandez as the 2018 Emerging Scholar recipient.
