Professor Longhofer, I Presume

January 19, 2011

Greetings!  After an unplanned hiatus (meaning, I was busy), I’m back to blogging again.  Anyhow, I have some great news to share:

Wes Longhofer landed a terrific job!  Starting next year, Wes will be an Assistant Professor of Organization & Management at the Goizueta Business School at Emory University.

They have a great orgs group there — Anand, Giacomo, Peter, Chris, and a bunch of other terrific people.  Of course, this continues a trend of B-schools pulling many of the best and brightest from sociology…

Congrats Wes!!!

p.s. now I know what to get Wes as a graduation present:  a sociology-to-MBA dictionary, so he can communicate with the MBAs…  for instance, his dissertation on “global philanthropy” roughly translates as “social ventures in emerging markets”.
:)
p.p.s. I’ll try to hold off on the MBA jokes, but it is hard to resist…
