Prof. (Dr.) Allan Afuah received his PhD from MIT. Dr. Afuah won the 2022 Academy of Management Review (AMR) Decade Award for the paper, “Crowdsourcing as a solution to distant search.” Considered the journal’s highest recognition, the AMR Decade Award honors the paper with the greatest impact on research in the last 10 years as reflected in metrics such as citations rates. He was also the winner of the 2019 AMR Managerial Practice Award. Before that, Professor Afuah won the 2012 Academy of Management Review (AMR) Best Paper Award when the journal was the world’s #1 business and #1 management/business journal. The courses Professor Afuah teaches take the point of view of a manager with overarching responsibility for the performance of his or her organization. His courses focus on how technological innovation concepts and phenomena can be used to explain and make predictions about how the world’s most valuable firms (e.g., Apple, Amazon, Alibaba, Facebook, Google, etc.) and former unicorns (e.g., Uber, Airbnb, etc.) create and capture value in an increasingly digital and uncertain world. Professor Afuah won the MBA teacher of the year award at Ross when there was only one MBA teaching award.
