Advancing Leadership: Research and Teaching

by Nitin Nohria


Despite the fact that most business schools' mission statement proclaim their commitment to developing leaders who can contribute in a meaningful way to the betterment of their organizations and society, research and teaching on leadership remains a fragmented and often marginal enterprise in most schools. This project is designed to stimulate research on leadership that is rigorous and relevant--advancing theory, teaching, and practice.  It aims to mobilize a community of scholars and educators who are committed to advancing that state of research and teaching on leadership.
