Emeritus Professor André Morkel played an important, formative part of the UWA Business School. We share below an excerpt from Professor Geoff Soutar’s eulogy for Emeritus Professor Morkel:

André joined UWA in 1976 as Professor of Commerce but soon became the first Head of the Management Department and Director of the MBA program, which was the love of his academic life. He also began UWA’s executive development program that is still contributing. Few people have left two programs that still impact so positively after so many years.
