The Management Undergraduate Society (MUS) has awarded the 2020-2021 Professor of the Year Award to Professor Jean-Nicolas Reyt. This annual award recognizes a professor's meaningful involvement with the student body, eagerness to have an impact on students lives outside the classroom, and great insight on theoretical and academic matters. It is the highest honour given by the undergraduate student body at the Desautels Faculty of Management.
Professor Reyt joined the Desautels Faculty of Management in 2014 as Assistant Professor of Organizational Behaviour (OB). Prior to joining Desautels, he was a visiting scholar at New York University. He teaches OB classes at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels. His research focuses on the relationship between the distances people consider (e.g. when working remotely) and important work outcomes including creativity, exploratory learning, and interpersonal influence. He holds a PhD in Management from Paris-Dauphine University.
