“ I feel sorrow, sadness and strong empathy with Ali’s family. I do also feel despair and anger because of everything we will miss when Ali is not among us any longer. I have learned to know Ali better and better during the last five years. We have cooperated as PRT members and have had intense and stimulating discussions about the changing roles of business schools and the general state of the world. During the last years we have also initiated successively closer cooperation between our respective schools.
I remember Ali for his clear and sound judgement, his strong commitment to academic values and his profound engagement and curiosity. A good friend who always was open for a stimulating conversation. ”
