Matthew Lee joined New York University Stern School of Business as Assistant Professor of Management in September 2019.

Professor Lee’s work seeks to advance our understanding of organizational hybridity, particularly in the context of businesses that incorporate social welfare and environmental sustainability goals in their strategies. In his research, he examines why hybrids emerge, how they blend multiple goals, and with what consequences for evaluation and performance. His recent work includes studies of social enterprises, impact investing, and corporate social responsibility, and he serves on the editorial review boards at Administrative Science Quarterly and Academy of Management Journal.

Before joining NYU Stern, from 2014-2019, Professor Lee was a Professor at INSEAD and based in Singapore. Prior to joining academia, he worked as a strategy consultant at the Bridgespan Group, a leading strategy consultancy serving social sector organizations.

Professor Lee received his bachelor’s degrees from Pennsylvania State University and his doctorate in Management from Harvard Business School.
