Professor Emeritus Yves Pigneur was awarded the honorific title by the Business Science Institute at an online ceremony on 1 October.
Appointed Professor Emeritus at HEC Lausanne in 2019 following a 35-year career, Yves Pigneur is a well-known figure. After publishing three books that revolutionised the way of creating business models, becoming a true global leader in his field and placed 4th in the biannual Thinkers50 ranking in 2019, Professor Emeritus Yves Pigneur was recently awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the Business Science Institute. The award was presented by the Business Science Institute (BSI), a networked academic institution created in 2013, at an online ceremony.
"The Business Science Institute’s choice is explained by the fact that Prof. Pigneur is a model academic who has had a tremendous impact on management," explains Prof. Jean-Pierre Helfer, Chair of the BSI’s academic committee. Yves Pigneur himself was delighted at the news: "I am very honoured to have received this award, especially from the Business Science Institute, created by Michel Kalika, whose values I share and whose achievements I admire."
HEC Lausanne congratulates Prof. Pigneur on his accolade and wishes him every success for his future projects!
