EghtesadOnline: Sharif University of Technology (SUT) professor has been awarded by System Dynamics Society prize for his thirty years of efforts and activities in the realm of system dynamics.
Dr. Ali Naghi Mashayekhi, the founder of SUT Management and Economy Department, received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the System Dynamics Society for his long-time and effective activities to establish institutes and make educational plans as well as research in the realm of system dynamics for more than three decades and training significant students.
According to IRNA, the System Dynamics Society is a not-for-profit organization based in Albany, New York, United States, whose mission is to further research into system dynamics and systems thinking.
System Dynamics Society occasionally recognizes people for making a significant contribution to a field or a practice over an extended period of time. This is the only award of the Society that is based on a body of work done over lifetime and not on a single article. This award was formalized in 2012 and had been given very sparingly in the past. The award carries a plaque recognizing the achievement of the winner.
Dr. Ali Naghi Mashayekhi is the fifth person who received this prestigious award.
