Pankaj Ghemawat
New York University Stern School of Business today announced that Pankaj Ghemawat will join its faculty in September 2014. Ghemawat will be a professor in Stern’s Management & Organizations department, where he has served as Distinguished Visiting Professor of Global Management since September 2013. Stern is appointing Ghemawat to lead a new center, the Center for the Globalization of Education and Management, to drive scholarship and pedagogy on the business implications of globalization. Ghemawat will also retain his position as the Anselmo Rubiralta Professor of Global Strategy at IESE Business School.

“We are delighted that Pankaj Ghemawat will become an official member of our faculty after visiting with us this past year to exchange ideas, engage with colleagues and sample our culture,” said Peter Henry, dean, NYU Stern. “The retention of a scholar of his caliber further enriches our bench of talent. Pankaj puts NYU in a position to lead important areas of inquiry on the most pressing issues facing firms, organizations and countries seeking to thrive in our interconnected, fiercely competitive, global economy.”

Ghemawat has written five books and more than 100 research articles and case studies on global business strategy and is one of the world's best-selling authors of teaching cases. With Steven Altman, he also compiles an annual globalization index that looks at the connectivity of more than 130 countries with the rest of the world in terms of trade, capital, information and people flows.

Ghemawat is a fellow of the Academy of International Business and of the Strategic Management Society. His most recent book, World 3.0 (2011, Harvard Business Review Press), reexamines beliefs about markets and globalization, praising market integration while addressing its potential negative ramifications against the goal of increasing prosperity. World 3.0 won the 50 Thinkers Book Award for the best business book published in 2010-2011, the Axiom Business Book Gold Award in the International Business/Globalization category and the IESE Alumni Research Excellence Award. In August 2014, Ghemawat received the Eminent Scholar award of the International Management Division of the Academy of Management.

Ghemawat earned both his B.S. in Applied Mathematics and his Ph.D. in Business Economics from Harvard University. He was on the faculty of Harvard Business School from 1983 to 2008, becoming the youngest person in the school's history to be appointed a full professor, in 1991. Ghemawat was also the youngest "guru" included in the guide to the greatest management thinkers of all time published in 2008 by The Economist. He has been on the faculty of IESE since 2006.
