Pankaj Ghemawat is the Global Professor of Management and Strategy and Director of the Centre for the Globalisation of Education and Management at the Stern School of Business at New York University, and the Anselmo Rubiralta Professor of Global Strategy at IESE Business School.
Between 1983-2008 he was on the faculty at the Harvard Business School where, in 1991, he became the youngest person in the school’s history to be appointed a full professor. Ghemawat was also the youngest “guru” included in the guide to the greatest management thinkers of all time published in 2008 by The Economist.
Ghemawat’s books include Commitment, Games Businesses Play, Strategy and the Business Landscape, Redefining Global Strategy, World 3.0, and The Laws of Globalisation. According to The Economist, “World 3.0 should be read by anyone who wants to understand the most important economic development of our time.” The Laws of Globalisation provides a rigorous data-driven discussion of globalisation at the world, country, industry and firm levels. Ghemawat’s latest book, The New Global Road Map: Enduring Strategies for Turbulent Times explains the key trends affecting global business today and how globalisation levels around the world are changing. He also addresses business responses to the present globalisation environment in his July-August 2017 Harvard Business Review cover story, Globalisation in the Age of Trump.
Ghemawat is also the lead author of the DHL Global Connectedness Index, a comprehensive analysis of the state of globalisation across 140 countries. This series of reports, now on its fourth edition, covers the depth and breadth of trade, capital, information, and people flows from 2005 to 2015.
Ghemawat helps companies and business schools better understand and address international opportunities and challenges. He is the Chairman of the Foundation for Practice and Research in Strategic Management (PRISM).
