Dr. Stefanie Lenway, former dean of the Opus College of Business at the University of St. Thomas, was recently awarded the IM Division Amorepacific Outstanding Educator Award by the Academy of Management. The award recognizes excellence in teaching international management through significant contributions to the field and can only be awarded by outside nominations. The Academy of Management is an association for management scholars that publishes journals, holds conferences, and allows for management professors to share research.
Lenway retired in June 2022 as dean of the Opus College, a position she held since 2014. During her tenure, Lenway led a strategic focus to principled leadership, entrepreneurship and innovation in the business of health care. Although she left her role as dean, Lenway remains on the Opus faculty and sits on the Business in a Digital World Initiative team as a faculty fellow for external outreach and business development.
