Dr. Richard G. Linowes, Management Educator at American University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Business.

Dr. Linowes entered his profession to help prevent unethical behavior in the business world. His mission statement is to “build enlightened leaders,” and he was able to witness his work in the field at the inaugural meeting of the Kogod Alumni Network of Greater New York, attended by 30 of his former students. Dr. Linowes is currently the Kogod Outstanding Professor of the undergraduate programs in the Kogod School of Business at American University, as well as an educator with the Foreign Services Institute of the U.S. Department of State. He has been invited often as a visiting professor, notably to Tel Aviv University in Israel in 2016 and to Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan in 2010.

Born to David Francis and Dorothy Lee Linowes, Dr. Linowes studied the self-designed major of cybernetics at Princeton University, and earned a Master of Science in computer and communication sciences from the University of Michigan in 1975. Before the age of 25, he had traveled all over the world and would continue his international travel through various positions and market business case studies. He worked as an affiliate of Matsushita Electric Industrial Company in Osaka, Japan, and to this day still values his extensive trips to visit American and Japanese companies and to meet with students around the world. Dr. Linowes returned to academia to earn a DBA from Harvard University in 1984 and transitioned into research with the Harvard Business School. He joined Goldman Sachs as a consultant in 1983, and has worked in the field of management and business ever since. While working in the center of the world’s financial system, he learned about capital markets and the essential role they play in the world. During his time on Wall Street, he witnesses both good and bad business practices and has been able to bring those experiences back to students to close the gaps in their own business education.

Dr. Linowes is the founding professor of Clarewood University, which opened to students in 2016, and intends on being the president of Clarewood in the coming years. He has also taught with New York University and was an examiner of an education pilot team. He is a member of the Greater Washington Area Board of Trade, editor of numerous volumes of “Portraits of Small Business from the Developing World, Management Casebooks,” as well as a volunteer with local schools. Dr. Linowes is a recipient of a 1994 Baldrige National Quality Award, a 1989 Fulbright Fellowship for Pedagogical Innovation in New Zealand, and the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. He is featured in Who’s Who in Finance and Industry, Who’s Who in American Education, Who’s Who in the East, and Who’s Who of Emerging Leaders in America. In his spare time, Dr. Linowes is often engaged in public speaking, landscaping, photography, singing, and travel. He has four children with his wife, Elisa. As a leader in education, Dr. Linowes endeavors to instill integrity and value in his students before they leave for the world in front of them. He guides his students with the mentality of, “It makes good business sense to have unquestioned integrity.  Tell the truth and keep your word. You are golden if you win everybody’s trust.”
