Adler, who also teaches classes in the NMSU College of Business Administration and Economics, received the award for his research in transaction cost theory, risk management and organizational learning while teaching at the Air Force Institute of Technology, and for his continued study of team decision making at NMSU.

"Academically this award brings a lot of credibility to the classroom," Adler said. "It also shows to the members of SCEA that NMSU and the Southwest are viable places for education and business."

SCEA, based in Alexandria, Va., is a non-profit group of practitioner, academic and government members devoted to the improvement of management, technical and accounting theory and methods. SCEA gives three awards annually, in the categories of management, technical achievement and education. The awards were presented at the annual SCEA conference in Manhattan Beach, Calif.

Adler earned a bachelor of science degree in management from the Air Force Academy in 1981, a master of business administration from Boston College in 1986 and a doctorate in business strategy and information systems from the University of Cincinnati in 1996.
