D’Amore-McKim School of Business Professor Daniel McCarthy was recently named a Northeastern University Distinguished Professor, the highest rank that can be bestowed upon a faculty member.

"Being awarded this title is a great honor for me, since it is a university wide recognition of my scholarly achievements that required support from leading scholars in international business and innovation, as well as from the leaders of the D'Amore McKim School of Business and a committee of University Distinguished Professors,” says McCarthy. “Such a broad recognition of my work is extremely gratifying, and I am very honored to have received it."

McCarthy is a renowned international business and management scholar and is consistently ranked as one of the most productive and influential practitioners in his field. He has consulted with domestic and international companies for more than 40 years. As a dedicated D’Amore-McKim faculty member, he has created and led innovative academic programs and was the co-director of the High-Tech MBA for many years. He is a member of the editorial board of The Journal of Leadership and Organizational Studies and currently reviews for more than a dozen journals.

McCarthy joins Professor Sheila Puffer as D’Amore-McKim’s second University Distinguished Professor.

“This is a wonderful and well-deserved honor for Dan, who has served D’Amore-McKim, our students, and our profession so extraordinarily well for over 40 years,” says D’Amore-McKim Dean Hugh Courtney.

In order to be nominated, University Distinguished Professors must have earned international recognition and distinction for educational, artistic, and/or scholarly contributions that have made transformational impact on their field. The total number of University Distinguished Professors does not exceed 10 percent of the number of tenured faculty holding the tile of professor at any given time.
