Degree honoris causa

This weekend, one of our 08:23ers, the one and only Tim (Professor Timothy L. Wilson) received an Honorary Doctorate degree from Umeå university. Congrats Tim – it is well earned!

Timothy L Wilson
Professor Timothy L. Wilson holds dual doctorate degrees after gaining a doctorate in business administration at Case-Western Reserve University and in technology at Carnegie-Mellon University. During his career, Professor Wilson has worked at several universities in several countries.

Combining industry experience with comprehensive research skills, Wilson has made a significant contribution to the subject of business administration. Wilson has produced nearly 300 scientific papers in several sub-disciplines of business administration research, often with an interdisciplinary connection.

For two decades, Wilson has been a very important source of inspiration in the development of Umeå School of Business and Economics. Wilson has been and remains a strong catalyst for stimulating article writing, even beyond the articles he co-authors. His solid training, long career in both industry and academia, interest in interdisciplinary research, and his personality has laid a foundation for many successful research collaborations, resulting in a large number of scholarly works.
In collaboration with research colleagues, from concept to completion, his humble approach and ability to achieve significant results in a relatively short time are highly valued qualities.

Today, this was also recognized in the local newspaper (click the picture to enlarge). You will find a link to previous Honorary doctors here.
