Longtime Baylor business professor Dr. Ray Bagby last month received the Max S. Wortman, Jr. Award for Lifetime Achievement in Entrepreneurship, an honor sponsored by the United States Association for Small Business and Entrepreneurship. The award was voted on by a committee of Bagby’s peers and is considered the group’s highest recognition.
Bagby, the Robert and Louise Rogers Professor of Entrepreneurship, came to Baylor in 1988. For the past 25 years, he has served as executive editor of the Entrepreneurship Theory & Practice Journal, one of the most widely respected journals in the industry.
We’ve written before about the importance of peer recognition in any field, but especially in academia. Of course, such honors are nothing new across Baylor’s campus, from music and business to geology to the staff who run Baylor’s video boards.
Sic ’em, Dr. Bagby and all Baylor’s outstanding faculty and staff!
