Professor of Practice Sujata Madan Receives Prestigious Academy of Finance Excellence in Teaching Award
The Desautels Faculty of Management is pleased to announce that Professor of Practice Sujata Madan is the recipient of the 2021 Academy of Finance Excellence in Teaching Award. This prestigious award is given annually to recognize excellence in teaching, to encourage teachers to share experiences that have led to them becoming great educators and how they continue to improve their teaching skills.
When Professor of Practice Sujata Madan noticed that her finance students seemed overwhelmed in the final weeks of a difficult semester, she recruited help from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and McGill’s Principal Suzanne Fortier, among others, to lift their spirits. The students left class with a renewed sense of optimism for a post-pandemic future.
Sujata Madan, Professor of Finance at the Desautels Faculty of Management, has been named a 2020 3M National Teaching Fellow—the highest recognition of individual teaching excellence and educational leadership at the university level.
The McGill Master of Management in Analytics (MMA) degree is a pre-experience, twelve-month specialized program in the evolving field of management analytics with a strong emphasis on experiential learning.
As part of this hands-on learning, the first cohort of MMA students went on the program's inaugural Study Trip to San Francisco in June.
Across programs and subject areas, the Desautels Faculty of Management recognizes the vital role that teaching plays in enriching the student experience and in inspiring the next generation of leaders.
On May 16, the Desautels community gathered to recognize faculty who have gone above and beyond in their teaching. Congratulations to the following recipients of the 2018-19 teaching awards!
Guest Lecture with MBA students in Modern Corporate Finance and BCom students in Corporate Finance – both with Sujata Madan
Thanks to a student-led fundraiser, a group of BCom students recently presented a Catchbox to the Desautels Faculty of Management in honour of Professor Sujata Madan.
Catchbox is a soft microphone that is designed to be thrown among an audience to increase engagement and participation.
This initiative was a way for students to thank a professor who continually inspires them.

Written by Professor Sujata Madan Career Change – How can an MBA help? There are generally two types of career change sought out by MBAs—a complete switch of role and industry, or a move within the same field.
Desautels MBA students, Alaa Abulhuda, Soeren Klatt, Lauren Merkel and Thomas Weber, took 2nd place at the 7th annual Financial Executives International (FEI) Best in Class Invitational Case Competition held in Toronto from November 15-17, 2012.

When John Haddon, 57, left a 22-year career in financial services in 2004, like many of us, he wasn't expecting the storms that lay on the horizon. One financial crisis later, he realised that, despite his years in the field, as an entrepreneur he was still lacking some of the skills required to navigate through choppy economic waters and a global business environment. "Although I'd been in financial services for a long while, I didn't have all that was required to 'speak the language'.
McGill University finance professor Sujata Madan bars students from bringing laptops to her class. The same goes for cellphones. And if you’d rather chat with friends than work on a problem that she provides 15 minutes of class time to tackle, there’s a good chance she’ll ask you to leave.
