My co-author Bernardo Batiz-Lazo has been awarded a prestigious prize by his alma mater in recognition of over 15 years of professional excellence.
Professor Batiz-Lazo, Professor of Business History and Bank Management at Bangor Business School, was awarded the ‘Premio al Merito Profesional’ (Professional Merit Award) by the alumni association of the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM).
Bernardo regards the award as “an opportunity to highlight the importance of a research agenda that crosses over the humanities and the social sciences, as does my interest in the role of computers in the history of capitalism.”
Javier Chavez Ruiz, CEO of Mexico Mobile and former Dean of ITAM’s Business School said: “this is the biggest honour that our beloved ITAM awards its most successful alumni. It is in recognition of Bernardo’s brilliant and highly successful academic career, which transcends national frontiers”.
