DBA Harvard Business School


Professor Mukherjee’s research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of leadership, technology, strategy, and organizational effectiveness.

His 2009 book, “The Spider’s Strategy”, explored the key fact that though today’s global companies compete as members of networks, markets continue to evaluate them individually. His next book will address the leadership needs in such companies at mid-tier levels. Numerous articles by him, or about his research, have appeared in academic and practitioner-oriented journals. 

Professor Mukherjee has been an academic, line executive, and consultant. Most recently he taught at Hult, and earlier, at INSEAD, and Babson. As Managing Professor – Hult Labs, he played a key role in transforming Hult’s MBA. He served as the Chief Technology & Strategy Officer of a small NASDAQ-listed technology company; a Director and co-practice-leader at a global consultancy; and founded the strategic consulting business at a NASDAQ-listed analyst company. He has helped corporate leaders craft business, organizational, and market entry strategies. He has also led operations improvement teams, and multi-organizational, multi-functional, groups that developed and launched next generation products.

He earned his undergraduate engineering degree from BITS, Pilani (India), an MBA from the Darden School of the University of Virginia (USA), and his doctorate from Harvard Business School.
