    What’s the nomination process for this? I know the current EMBA class of ~90 ppl at Chicago Booth would endorse Prof. Epley and would also love to nominate Prof. Amit Seru to this list.

  • Shruti Srinivasan

    And how would you know?

  • Shruti Srinivasan

    Well that is a misconception then, isnt it? There are so many wonderful professors from Asia

  • umesh

    quickbuck, Which country you are from? Will you be not proud if anyone from your
    country achieves a coveted position? Rajendra,
    There is nothing wrong in expression of pride and happiness and it hasn’t
    mistreated anyone. We will also
    celebrate for Nitin Nohria J

  • JM

    For those that don’t already know…. Kelly Goldsmith was a candidate on “Survivor” back in the day.

  • quickbuck

    I don’t know, maybe you should ask yourself.

  • rajendra

    Did you read ”known”? Why self doubt, if at all ?

  • quickbuck

    Why you gave examples just from India?! Sometimes I have the impression you guys are discriminating.

  • martoma_the_cheat

    I’m studying in Asia and to be honest you don’t really have good professors…generally speaking.

  • Chris

    I know several of these professors—they are very special indeed. Bright and hard working.

  • wyldsson

    Disappointed not to see Jonah Berger (Wharton, author of Contagious – great book). I reckon he’s under 40.

  • BFLY

    Those who cant, teach. This list is a joke. Public education is second only to the insurance industry as the biggest scam going. A better article would be universities with the best career development offices…

  • joghonno

    please read my earlier comment as: no professor from any business school in China, India, or SE Asia.

  • rajendra

    There are many Asians in this list. Please count. They are already serving the knowledge market as Professors, Deans and Big Business CEOs too.

  • joghonno

    next time one professor from Asia will be included to cater to that market.

  • rajendra

    I am happy to see names of 2 Professors who are known: Anindya, NYU Stern and Deepak, HBS. Professionally I find the exercise of naming a list of people under 40 is ridiculous. In best organisations before recruitment sex and age etc are not discussed. These are the times of knowledge workers. In movies also actors are not considered on the basis of age. Bring value to the table, that’s it.An outdated concept, must be shunned.

  • JohnAByrne

    Do us all a favor and name the person and tell us why you think everyone supposedly hates the faculty member.

  • Wonderer

    you like Tuck things anyway John! Only blind can’t see this in your language about everything related to Tuck and Dartmouth in general 🙂

  • JohnAByrne

    He was on our list last time. We tried not to include people who were already honored. I think we made one exception: Tuck’s Leslie Robinson.

  • Dave

    Where’s Adam Grant?

  • Bryan

    I took professor Yaniv Konchitchki’s MBA class in financial accounting. He is really an incredible professor. Well deserve!

  • Kelly

    No Adam Grant?

  • Joe blow

    No. Sorry.

  • Jayanth Narayanan

    I have no idea how you come up with the list. Like another comment points out, there is no one from all of Asia. There are a number of people who I admire here. But, we do have some great teaching and research talent here in Asia!

  • Joe blow

    Any nude shots of Professor Goldsmith?

  • Wedding planner

    Not a single Asian school included. No good young professors in Asia?

  • Jeremy

    Doesn’t appear to be an overly diverse group of schools… would be interested to know if all business schools in the world were invited to participate or if you decided to just survey the top 50 schools in the world. Also surprised about not seeing Adam Grant from Wharton, who has appeared on other 40 under 40 lists previously.

  • Anthony

    I find it odd that the University of Rochester (Simon) Knyazeva sisters did not make the list for Finance.

  • Pedro Paulo

    how is this review done? there is a professor there that I know everyone hates.. how was he the selected one?
