Dr. E. Stephen Grant, Professor of Marketing, was recently awarded the 2009 Faculty Excellence in Teaching Award.

The award was created by the faculty many years ago to support faculty excellence in teaching. Each year the faculty honours one professor for his or her outstanding teaching performance.

The choice of the award recipient belongs to the students. At the end of each academic year students in the BBA and MBA programs nominate the professor who they feel is most deserving of the Award. A committee of current BBA and MBA students, plus an alumni representative then selects the winner from among the nominees.

Dr. Grant is a graduate of the UNB BBA program, and he joined the faculty as a lecturer from 1987-1990 and later returned to the faculty in 1993 as a full time professor of marketing. He now teaches courses for the marketing and entrepreneurship areas.

For a number of years Dr. Grant has been involved in the export partnering program, teaching the export market entry course. Dr. Grant has an outstanding record of research and service to the faculty and university, which was recognized in 2005 when he received the UNB Merit Award.

Steve Grant's recognition for excellent teaching is long overdue, commented Dr. Daniel Coleman, dean of the Faculty of Business Administration. Steve has contributed to teaching in many ways for many years, having helped with the export partnering program, the Activator (entrepreneurship) program, and of course, his outstanding delivery of a wide array of marketing courses. He is one of our very best instructors.
