Barry Mitnick Wins ‘Ideas Worth Teaching Award’

Pitt Business professor Barry Mitnick’s course Market Manipulations: Crises, Bubbles, Robber Barons and Corporate Saints has been recognized with a 2019 Ideas Worth Teaching Award—one of only 10 courses worldwide to be selected.

The award honors “faculty who are redefining business education—providing learning experiences that equip managers of tomorrow with the context, skills and decision-making capabilities needed to lead in an increasingly complex business environment—and world.”

It’s not the first time the prestigious international organization has recognized Mitnick’s work; in 2014, he was a finalist in the Faculty Pioneer Awards.

Focused on U.S. business history from 1835-1935, Mitnick’s course aims to help students understand the major kinds of market manipulations, their historical contexts and consequences and what insights they can provide for modern business behavior.
