Tim Scales has been awarded the 2010 Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs Teaching Excellence Award for Region 4. He is the director of the Center for Entrepreneurship and lecturer of business administration at Indiana University East.
Scales will receive the award during the ACBSP annual conference, Salute to Regions Luncheon, on Sunday, June 27, in Los Angeles. He will be presented with a medallion and monetary award. The Association of Business Schools and Programs recognizes individuals each year who exemplify teaching excellence in the classroom.
The ACBSP will now consider Scales as a candidate for the International Teaching Excellence Award. The two International Award Recipients will be named at the luncheon.
David Frantz, dean of the School of Business and Economics, commented that students are often complimentary of Scales as a professor. He said Scales has developed innovative teaching methods that interest students and incorporate valuable business concepts.
“In my estimation, this is because Tim works to connect learning objectives to the real world and to the lives of his students. He has connected guest speakers from the community with our students who are able to relate academic concepts to practical issues,” Frantz said.
The IU East School of Business and Economics is professionally accredited by the ACBSP. ACBSP currently has more than 729 members in 32 countries and nine regions.
“This accreditation is important to IU East and prospective students because it is a partnership that focuses on the continual improvement of our teaching and our academic programs,” said Frantz. “It is one more external standard that helps students and employers know that they are receiving a quality education here at IU East.”
