Ross Professor Named Among Most Influential Scientific Minds in the World


Two Ross professors, Dana Muir and Richard Bagozzi, were recognized recently for their expertise and leadership in their respective fields.

Muir, an authority on pension funding and investment policies, was appointed to the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Insurance and Asset Management. During this two-year appointment, she will give input to WEF governors for their meetings in Davos and help shape the Outlook on the Global Agenda and the Global Agenda Survey.

The Global Agenda Councils are made up of the world’s top thought leaders in business, academia, and government who bring new ideas to the most pressing issues in their fields. Muir is Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Business Law.

This is an outstanding honor to Dana and a testament to the high regard in which she is held as an expert in this space.Wallace Hopp, senior associate dean for faculty and research.

Bagozzi was named by Thomson Reuters as one of “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds 2014” in the economics and business field. Bagozzi, Dwight F. Benton Professor of Behavioral Science in Management, studies the intersection of business, behavior science, and neuroscience.

The researchers on the list were chosen by analyzing citation data over the last 11 years to find who published the highest-impact work and who influenced the future direction of their fields.

“They are performing and publishing work that their peers recognize as vital to the advancement of their science,” the report states. “These researchers are, undoubtedly, among the most influential scientific minds of our time.”
