Many MBA applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand when they choose an MBA program, but the educational experience at business school 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 Sanjay Dhar from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
If one were to say that a star marketing professor could be found in the city of Chicago, one would likely guess that he/she would be found at Kellogg. However, Chicago Booth is working hard to develop its marketing program, and the school can boast that it can claim the professor who wrote what the Journal of Marketing Research deemed its best article of 2008 and who has received several other awards and citations, including being recognized as an outstanding faculty member in at least three Bloomberg Businessweek guides to the best business schools: Sanjay Dhar (“Marketing Strategy,” “Marketing Workshop”). In a March 2010 Chicago Booth admissions chat, Dhar was described as one of the school’s “amazing marketing professors.” In addition, students told mbaMission they are pleased that Dhar is teaching more and researching less. He keeps the energy high in his classroom by constantly walking up and down the aisles during discussions and then literally running to the board to write down salient points.
