Hamid Beladi, associate dean of research in the College of Business, was named a recipient of the President’s Distinguished Achievement Award for Advancing Globalization during UTSA’s University Excellence Awards Ceremony on April 8.
“It is a real honor for me to receive this award,” said Beladi, who teaches international economics and international trade and finance. “Globalization has become an indispensable part of the curriculum at every major research university. Faculty members do the work they love every day, but by receiving recognition, it makes it so much more rewarding.”
A professor of economics, Beladi is a renowned researcher with more than 200 published articles in peer-reviewed academic journals. He is the co-founder of the International Economics and Finance Society and a recognized leader in the field of international economics.
He is the editor of the International Review of Economics and Finance, associate editor of the Review of International Economics, managing editor of the North American Journal of Economics and Finance and series editor of Frontiers of Economics and Globalization.
“As UTSA strives to establish a global presence and perspective, Hamid assists the university in reaching these goals,” said Ken Weiher, chair of the Department of Economics. “He is a portal to the globe, and we are very fortunate to have him on our faculty.”
His impressive record of teaching, research and service linked to global issues and, more specifically, to fundamental theoretical and methodological contributions to international trade led to this honor.
The Advancing Globalization award recognizes faculty who have significantly expanded UTSA’s involvement in the global arena, either through the development and implementation of international components into the curriculum; study-abroad programs; or collaborations with foreign institutions.
