Pankaj Ghemawat is professor of global management and director of the Center for the Globalization of Education and Management at NYU Stern, and the Anselmo Rubiralta Professor of Global Strategy at IESE Business School. Between 1983 and 2008, he served on the faculty at Harvard Business School where, in 1991, he became the youngest person in the school's history to be appointed a full professor.  Ghemawat is also the youngest "guru" included in the guide to the greatest management thinkers of all time published in 2008 by The Economist.  Other recent honors include the McKinsey Award for the best article published in the Harvard Business Review and the Irwin Educator of the Year award from the Academy of Management. 

Ghemawat studies sustainable competitive advantage, competitive dynamics, and strategic investment. His latest book, "World 3.0: Global Prosperity and How to Achieve It," should, according to The Economist, "Be read by anyone who wants to understand the most important economic development of our time." It won the Thinkers50 award for the best business book published in 2010-2011. He is now working on a book on globalization and culture.
