Your program director, Howard Yu

Howard H. Yu is Professor of Strategic Management and Innovation. He specializes in technological innovation, strategic transformation and change management. His teaching and research activities focus on why and how some firms can sustain new growth while others cannot.

Among the many industries that Professor Yu has investigated – ranging from healthcare, automobile and heavy machinery to fast-moving consumer goods – he has also traced the evolution of the global PC industry, including the top three motherboard makers and laptop manufacturers worldwide. The resultant paper, titled "Leopards sometimes change their spots: How established firms can transform themselves," won the prestigious best paper award at the Israel Strategy Conference. His work appears regularly in the Financial Times, Harvard Business Review (China Edition) and Forbes (India Edition).

In 2015 Professor Yu was featured in Poets & Quants, a well respected higher education resource, as one of the Best 40 Under 40 Professors. Professor Yu is also a prize-winning case writer (EFMD - The European Foundation for Management Development).
