They hail from business schools across the world. They teach and research in virtually every discipline. They are the world’s top 50 business school professors.
The list includes famous superstar professors, such as Harvard’s Clayton Christensen, Wharton’s Jeremy Siegel and Stanford’s Jeffrey Pfeffer, as well as faculty little known outside their schools or fields of study, such as operations maven Michael Trick at Carnegie Mellon or finance expert Dana Muir at Michigan’s Ross School of Business. Some 12 of the 50 are women, while nine are Indian, including Dartmouth’s Vijay Govindarajan, the innovation guru at the Tuck School, and NYU’s Aswath Damodaran, the self-effacing master of finance at the Stern School.
