Professor Profiles: Adam Brandenburger, NYU Stern School of Business

Many MBA applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand, but the educational experience itself is crucial to your future, and no one will affect your education more than your professors. Each Wednesday, we profile a standout professor as identified by students. Today, we focus on Adam Brandenburger from New York University’s Leonard N. Stern School of Business.

A known expert on game theory and its practical application to business strategy, Adam Brandenburger (“Game Theory and Business Strategy”) was voted the NYU Stern MBA Professor of the Year in 2006 and, in 2007, received a Teaching Excellence award from his academic colleagues in recognition of his teaching and course development work. Students with whom mbaMission spoke reported being consistently impressed by his ability to make the complex simple in the classroom, stating that Brandenburger is able to take the “complicated, theoretical and intangible” world of game theory and make it “easy to understand and practical.”
