Professor of Marketing Rajesh Chandy has won the 2018 Vijay Mahajan Award for Lifetime Contributions to Marketing Strategy Research, from the American Marketing Association’s Marketing Strategy Special Interest Group.

The accolade recognises Professor Chandy’s outstanding impact on marketing strategy practice, research and education.

He was presented with the award at the AMA’s 2018 Summer Educators Conference in Boston.
