Speaker Profiles

Professor James Schrager (Speaker)
Clinical Professor of Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management, University of Chicago Booth School of Business

Professor Schrager studies the use of strategy by executives and venture capital partners. He was drawn to this research by a fascination with extreme success and a desire to better understand how it happens--or not. In the classroom, Schrager pushes his students to discover how to better judge potential new venture investments and growth opportunities for existing businesses by using the unique power of strategy. His work is powered by the application of Herbert A. Simon's concept of Bounded Rationality to strategy.

Professor Schrager has published multiple articles in the Wall Street Journal, CEO Magazine, and the Chicago Tribune, among others. He is frequently quoted in the press and has appeared on NBC, ABC, PBS, and other networks as an expert commentator on business strategy

Professor Schrager was editor of the Journal of Private Equity (published by Institutional Investor) for over a decade. In 2013, he co-authored a paper on the emerging field of Behavioral Strategy for the Journal of Strategy and Management.
