James Detert, assistant professor of management, and Marc Busch, Karl F. Landegger Professor of International Business Diplomacy (Georgetown University), were selected by the Cornell-Queen's Executive MBA Class of 2010 as co-recipients of the Cornell-Queen's Executive MBA Star Award for Outstanding Teaching. Detert's research focuses on the antecedents, processes, and outcomes of improvement-oriented voice from subordinates to authorities in work organizations; leadership processes, behaviors, and outcomes; and ethical decision making and behavior, particularly the sociocognitive processes and mechanisms of moral disengagement. His research and consulting experiences on these and other topics range across a variety of high-technology and service-oriented industries, as well as public sector institutions, such as K-12 education. His research has appeared in the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, and several other academic journals.
Busch's research and teaching focus on the political economy of trade policy. Author of the book Trade Warriors, he is an expert on international trade policy and law, and he has published articles in numerous peer-reviewed journals. He has been awarded research grants from the National Science Foundation, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, Harvard, the John M. Olin Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the Center for Social Sciences at Columbia, and the Institute for the Study of World Politics, among others, and is co-editor of the journal Economics & Politics.
