Hans B. Thorelli Award

Hans B. Thorelli Award

This award honors an article that has made the most significant and long-term contribution to international marketing theory or practice.


Eligibility

Each year, the Editorial Board of the Journal of International Marketing honors the author(s) of one of the articles published with the Hans B. Thorelli Award, which was reestablished as a five-year-plus award in 2005. This year’s award recognizes an article published in 2005 that has made the most significant and long-term contribution to international marketing theory or practice.


History

The award is named in honor of Professor Hans B. Thorelli. Professor Thorelli directed the first-ever representative study of consumer experience in the marketplace in a developing country (Thailand). He initiated the development of the pioneering, marketing-oriented International Operations Simulation (INTOP) at the University of Chicago in 1964 and directed the 2006 edition of INTOPIA B2B for the Internet. Thorelli was a Distinguished Professor of Business Administration Emeritus at Indiana University and the author of more than 100 articles and 11 books in marketing, international business, strategic management, and public policy. He held doctoral and LLD degrees from the University of Stockholm. Professor Thorelli passed away in 2009.


Process

The Journal of International Marketing Editor assembles a three-person review committee, which includes the editor. The editorial board of the journal submits nominations from eligible articles (published 5 years ago or earlier). The editorial office reviews the nominations from the editorial review board and sends the complete list to the three-person committee for final review and selection. The committee evaluates articles in relation to their impact on the field (e.g., number of citations, breadth of citations, contributions to the literature) and overall quality.


Recognition and Benefits

The award will be presented at the upcoming Summer AMA Academic Conference.


AMA Foundation

As the philanthropic arm of the AMA, the AMA Foundation champions individual marketers who are making an impact in our profession and community.  We recognize marketing visionaries who have elevated the field, and we support the next generation of marketers who will transform the profession.
