Clinical Professor of Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management
James E. 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.
Schrager earned a bachelor's degree in economics from Oakland University, an MBA from the University of Colorado, a JD from the Depaul University College of Law, and a PhD from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business in organization behavior and policy.
