Among all the faculty members across the TCU campus, Ryan Krause, professor of strategy at the Neeley School of Business, was honored by the Chancellor with the Deans’ Award for Research and Creativity. Krause received the award at TCU’s 2019 Convocation of Academic Excellence in May.

Each dean at TCU nominates the professor who has produced the highest quality research over the last several years. The nominating division assembles a dossier of the candidate’s work, supplemented with letters of support written by scholars from other universities regarding the national and international significance of the body of research. The dossiers are presented to the Provost and TCU Council of Deans to choose the winner. Honorees are recognized at convocation.

Krause is the Robert and Edith Schumacher Junior Faulty Fellow in Entrepreneurship and Innovation. He joined TCU Neeley in 2013 after earning his PhD in strategic management and organization theory from Indiana University. He teaches at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. 

Krause’s research expertise covers top management, stakeholders and directors. Recently published research articles include:
