Aidin Namin, associate professor of marketing analytics in the College of Business Administration at LMU, has been named one of the 40 Under 40 Best MBA Professors of 2023 by Poets&Quants, a news website dedicated to business education.
Namin was selected from more than 1,500 nominations by students, colleagues and administrators around the world, and evaluated based on demonstrated excellence in teaching and research, including influencing business and policy and having meaningful impact on their fields. Professors on the list come from various U.S. and international business schools including top-ranked institutions such as MIT, The Wharton School, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Northwestern Kellogg, Chicago Booth, NYU, Cornell and Columbia. Namin is one of only two professors not from an R1 institution.
“I am truly honored and humbled by this recognition and thrilled to see LMU and my name next to professors from the highest ranked institutions in the world,” said Namin. “This is a testament to the quality of education LMU offers its students and the meritorious scholarly work conducted by faculty.”
An internationally recognized teacher and scholar, Namin joined LMU in 2017 and has won several research and best paper awards from various foundations, and multiple internal and external research grants for innovation in teaching. To date, he has received three major teaching awards, including the 2023 American Marketing Association (AMA) Teaching Award.
“I would like to express my gratitude to Dean Dayle Smith for navigating the college toward a trajectory of success,” he said. “I also wish to thank my colleagues and co-authors for contributing to my growth. My appreciation also goes to the unwavering support I have received from my students who always inspire me to do my best.”
