The highest honor bestowed by AMS, the award recognizes Malhotra's achievements in research, teaching and service over the years.

A past president of AMS and chairman of its board of governors, Malhotra has published more than 100 papers in major refereed journals, including the Journal of Marketing Research, Journal of Consumer Research, Marketing Science, Management Science, Journal of Marketing, and Journal of Health Care Marketing. His textbook, Marketing Research: An Applied Orientation, is used by more than 144 schools in the United States as well as internationally.
