Distinguished Teaching Competition

Teaching?  Instruction?  How good are you...REALLY? Let's find out!

Since 1998, the best of the best business professors have come together in a national teaching competition.  This competition provides an opportunity for individuals who are distinguishing themselves as master teachers to see how good they really are.

At the SMA Annual Conference,  finalists present their work.  Winners receive an awards plaque and cash awards.  If you have entered before, you are encouraged to enter again. This is a fun, tough, rewarding competition.  No matter where you are in your career, you will learn from the finalists' presentations.
