Business professor wins state SBA award
Dorothy Perrin Moore, The Citadel's Distinguished Professor of Entrepreneurship, has received Women in Business Advocate of the Year Award for South Carolina. The award was announced in a press conference last week by the U.S. Small Business Administration which sponsors the awards program to recognize individuals who have made outstanding contributions in the field.
Moore, a tenured full professor, is the author of Careerpreneurs: Lessons from Leading Women Entrepreneurs on Building a Career Without Boundaries. Published in August 2000 by Davies-Black Publishing, the book was named Business Book of the Year by ForeWord magazine and was a Doubleday Executive Program Book Club selection.
She is also the first author of Women Entrepreneurs - Moving Beyond the Glass Ceiling published in 1997 by Sage Publications. Now in its sixth printing, like Careerpreneurs, it was nominated for an Academy of Management Terry Book Award.
A member of The Citadel's faculty since 1981, she is the senior female faculty member and teaches undergraduate courses in organizational behavior and management and graduate courses in entrepreneurship, human resources management, organizational behavior and professional communications.
Professor Moore holds a Ph.D. in management, organizational behavior and human resource management from the University of South Carolina. She is the author or coauthor of many publications and since 1997, she has been a monthly columnist for the business review section of the Charleston Post and Courier.
