Henry Chesbrough, the creator of “open innovation” paradigm, is the educational director of the Garwood Center for Corporate Innovation at Berkeley Haas. His work focuses on innovation strategy and technology management. He has been an adjunct professor at the Harvard Business School and formerly held positions with Quantum Corporation, a manufacturer of data storage devices and systems, as product manager and vice president of marketing. He graduated from Yale University with a BA in economics, Stanford University with an MBA, and Berkeley Haas with a PhD in business administration. His research has essentially shaped the way College members think about the cornerstones of their management studies, such as innovation, business model and strategy.
The internationally recognized Herbert Simon award was founded by the members of Rajk College of Advanced Studies in 2004. In each year, the college members nominate business theorists for the award whose outstanding academic work had a lasting impression on the professional development of the students. We aim to raise the quality of Hungary’s academic life by inviting top academics of their field, and by introducing new methodologies and research fields.
