In the Spotlight



This year, INSEAD Professor of Technology and Operations Management Luk Van Wassenhove has again received international recognition for his outstanding work. In June 2018, Luk received an Honorary Doctorate in Mechanical Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki for profound and enduring contributions in Management Science and Engineering. In November 2018, Luk was also named Fellow of INFORMS for his pioneering work on closed loop supply chains (sustainability) and humanitarian operations, making him the first professor to be recognised by five major professional Operations Management and Management Sciences societies.

This achievement demonstrates the legacy of academic excellence that Luk has cultivated over his career. His other major professional society awards include a 2013 Honorary Fellowship from EUROMA, a 2009 MSOM Fellow Award, a 2006 EURO Gold Medal from the European Association of Operational Research Societies and a 2005 Fellow of POMS Award. Luk has also received many other notable honours and distinctions, including induction into The Royal Flemish Academy of Sciences and holding the Francqui chair at the Université Catholique de Louvain in 2011. This August, Luk received peer appreciation when the INSEAD faculty gave him special recognition for outstanding contributions to the PhD programme.

Professor Van Wassenhove holds the INSEAD Henry Ford Chair of Manufacturing, he created the INSEAD Social Innovation Centre and has led the INSEAD Humanitarian Research Group since 2001. He is also Academic Director of the INSEAD Sustainability Initiative. Through his relentless pursuit of excellence and drive to deliver value to business and society, Luk is a shining example of thought leadership and academic rigour at INSEAD.
