The Stockholm School of Economics awarded Pete Bucklin, professor emeritus of marketing, an honorary doctorate in recognition of his outstanding scientific contribution to the academic field of marketing and distribution and the valuable service he provided to the school's programs over the years.
Bucklin was feted at a black tie ceremony in Stockholm this past September. Two other Haas faculty have received Stockholm School of Economics honorary degrees. One is former dean E.T. Grether. The second is the current finance chair, Nils Hakansson.
Ganesh Iyer, assistant professor in the marketing group, has been named the Schwabacher Fellow for 2002-2003. This fellowship is the highest honor that the Haas School bestows upon assistant professors. During his fellowship year, Iyer will continue his research in the areas of customer information markets, consumer identification and targeting, and Internet institutions and their market impact.
