Management Professor John Seeger Named NACRA Fellow

October 28, 2002

WALTHAM, Mass. - John A. Seeger, professor of management at Bentley College, was recently named a Fellow by the North American Case Research Association (NACRA) at their annual conference in Banff, Alberta, Canada.

In recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field of case research, writing, and teaching, Seeger was given an honor awarded to only 13 others in the 500-member organization over its 42-year history. During his 20-year association with NACRA, Seeger has held virtually every position within the organization, including president (1999-2000) and editor of the Case Research Journal (1992-95), NACRA's quarterly publication.

Normally, former NACRA officers have to wait until they've been out of office five years to be named a Fellow. Seeger's waiting period was waived.

"This is a big honor," says Seeger. "I was surprised to be named [a fellow] so soon."

"John has played a key role in shaping the organization's strategic direction," says Lew G. Brown, current NACRA president. "His work will have lasting impact on the organization's important role of disseminating its members' scholarly work."

Seeger shares his passion and extensive research wisdom with his students at Bentley, as he is the coach of the Society for Advancement of Management (SAM), Boston B-school Beanpot and National Black MBA Association case competition teams. Bentley's SAM teams have captured two first place trophies each of the past two years at the annual national competition.

A resident of Sudbury, Seeger is a graduate of MIT and Harvard.

NACRA is a collaborative organization of some 450 case writers and teachers, mostly in the business disciplines, who support each other's research and writing efforts. Its annual conference features round table workshops where all participants receive knowledgeable suggestions aimed at making their cases publishable-- in refereed journals or in textbooks (or both) - in the following year. Cases, case-related papers, and proposals are invited from all fields that use cases as part of their teaching methodologies.
