"I was truly honored to receive this award and I am particularly proud of the recognition for the work that I have done in community outreach," said Sciglimpalia.

"Dr. Sciglimpaglia has built a legacy of developing award-winning educational programs and publishing meaningful research that has offered enlightenment on consumer behavior and marketing education. The innovative student projects done through the Small Business Consulting Center, which he founded, have had a profoundly positive impact on our students, local business and the economy at large," said Dr. Michael Cunningham, dean of SDSU's College of Business Administration.
