Ruane Award for Business Education Innovation

The Business Education Innovation Center (BEIC) inaugurated the Ruane Award for Business Education Innovation in 2016.

Submissions of manuscripts and publications with a focus on business education innovation, spanning all business disciplines are vetted annually by a panel comprised of seasoned business education professionals, and the finalist(s) receive an award of $5,000.
