Qais Mohammadi Receives 2019 ACBSP Teaching Excellence Award


OVERLAND PARK, KS, USA (April 3, 2019) Qais Mohammadi, Assistant Professor and Department Head, Kardan University, Kabul, Afghanistan, has been named a regional recipient of the 2019 ACBSP Teaching Excellence Award. The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) recognizes individuals each year who exemplify teaching excellence in the classroom.

Professor Mohammadi will be honored, along with other regional recipients, at the ACBSP Conference 2019, June 21- 24 in Houston, Texas. He will receive a crystal medallion and a $250 check. Two International Teaching Excellence Award recipients, one from a baccalaureate/graduate degree-granting institution and one from an associate degreegranting institution, will be announced at the Salute to Regions ceremony. As a regional recipient, Professor Mohammadi is now a candidate for the international award.

“I have figured out that he is an exceptional communicator, and a gifted teacher. I believe that he is a perfect model for other faculty in Kardan University. He has always strived to get his students to a success point. A good example of this is, a growing number of students working in high positions in the public and private institutions. His communicative abilities both in the lectureship and in personal issues have made Qais Mohammadi a dynamic and powerful communicator, which has also helped him make complex subjects understandable to his students,” said Sayed Abdul Moiz Mirzada, Dean Faculty of Economics, Kardan University.

The ACBSP Associate Degree Commission established the International Teaching Excellence Award in 1995 to recognize outstanding classroom teachers. In 2002, the Baccalaureate Degree Commission created a similar award to recognize excellence in teaching at the baccalaureate/graduate degree level. ACBSP is the only specialized body for business schools that presents an award recognizing excellence in teaching, open to application by the entire membership.
