Dec. 6, 2023

Dr. Terence OwMILWAUKEE — Dr. Terence Ow, professor of information systems and analytics in Marquette University’s College of Business Administration, was featured among Poets & Quants for Undergrads’ 50 Best Undergraduate Professors for 2023.

Selections were chosen from over 650 nominations of business faculty from students, alumni, colleagues and deans, and were chosen by the Poets & Quants editorial staff on criteria such as research and teaching accolades. The 50 winners represented 33 schools.

"Dr. Ow is a terrific faculty member,” said Tim Hanley, acting Keyes Dean of Business Administration. “His strong research record, innovative approach to teaching and all-around dedication to the job has made an enormous impact throughout his two decades here in the Marquette College of Business Administration. This is a well-deserved honor that shows just how high the standard for instruction and scholarship is at Marquette."

Ow is a recipient of the John P. Raynor, S.J., Faculty Award, Marquette University’s highest honor for teaching excellence. He was inducted as an honorary faculty member of Alpha Sigma Nu Jesuit Honor Society for his dedication to the Jesuit ideals of scholarship, loyalty and service. He was honored as a Faculty All-star in 2019.

“The impact that Professor Ow has on not just the classes he teaches, but the entire business school as a whole is what truly sets him apart from every other professor that I have,” said Andrew Khoury, a senior marketing and information systems major. “Every year for the last 19 years he has set up a networking event known as Biznet, which allows students such as me to interact with our future employers in a setting that is not as strenuous as a career fair. This event was a major reason as to why I was able to land my internship last year.”
