Dr. Terence Ow, associate professor of management at Marquette University, recently received the university’s highest teaching honor, the John P. Raynor, S.J. Faculty Award for Teaching Excellence.
Ow is known to be one of the most approachable and most challenging professors in his department. A former student said, “There was never an ‘easy’ day in his classroom, but there was also never a day I didn’t grow and develop in my knowledge.”
With an open door policy, students often attend Ow’s office hours for questions about coursework, career choice, internships and jobs. Ow puts his passion into practice, holding himself to the same high expectations he holds his students and challenging himself to be as relevant as possible in the dynamic area of study.
“I always want to be sure I set our students up to be as successful as possible in their chosen field, given today’s ever changing technology,” Ow said.
Ow has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in information technology, ranging from strategy to web programming. His research can be found in highly ranked journals including Management Information Systems Quarterly, Journal of Operations Management and Communications of the Association for Computing Machinery, among others. He has been cited in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Milwaukee BizTimes on topics like mobile banking, mobile technology and Internet access for the consumers.
Teaching Excellence Awards are the highest honor bestowed upon Marquette University faculty members. Recipients are nominated by their colleagues and students for demonstrating excellence as teacher-scholars.
