Professor of Management Todd Zenger was honored recently by a prestigious operational research society for writing the best paper.

The paper, “The small firm effect and the entrepreneurial spawning of scientists and engineers,” co-authored by Daniel Elfenbein, Barton Hamilton and Zenger, was honored as best paper by the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS).

This is the competition’s inaugural year, and it judged research papers published five years ago, in 2010. Zenger’s paper rose to the top of the competition.

Congratulations, Professor Zenger!
