Overview

I am interested in strategy and entrepreneurship. My dissertation work explores the implications of competition between partially substituting technologies, where buyers may make a single choice, or acquire a portfolio of technologies to meet their range of needs. Other papers look at evolutionary search processes in corporate strategy, and the effects of policy on entrepreneurial decision making. Preferred methods include computational and statistical modeling.

Past Courses

  • MGMT101 - INTRO TO MANAGEMENT

    We all spend much of our lives in organizations. Most of us are born in organizations, educated in organizations, and work in organizations. Organizations emerge because individuals can't (or don't want to) accomplish their goals alone. Management is the art and science of helping individuals achieve their goals together. Managers in an organization determine where their organization is going and how it gets there. More formally, managers formulate strategies and implement those strategies. This course provides a framework for understanding the opportunities and challenges involved in formulating and implementing strategies by taking a "system" view of organizations,which means that we examine multiple aspects of how managers address their environments, strategy, structure, culture, tasks, people, and outputs, and how managerial decisions made in these various domains interrelate. The course will help you to understand and analyze how managers can formulate and implement strategies effectively. It will be particularly valuable if you are interested in management consulting, investment analysis, or entrepreneurship - but it will help you to better understand and be a more effective contributor to any organizations you join, whether they are large, established firms or startups.
