Many MBA applicants feel that they are purchasing a brand when choosing a business school, but the educational experience is what 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 Louis Thomas from the Indian School of Business (ISB).
Also a professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Louis Thomas (“Economics of Strategy”) received the ISB’s Professor of the Year Award from the school’s Mohali campus Class of 2013 for his excellence in teaching and mentorship. With a focus on competitive strategy, game theory, and organization economics, Thomas’s “Economics of Strategy” course is reportedly one of the most popular at the school. Students quoted on the ISB Web site have said of his teaching and class, “Economics was never so much fun!” and “Professor Thomas has been able to provide rationality to many decisions that companies over the world have taken. He took the entire ‘It Depends’ approach to something more concrete by looking from an economics perspective. He is a professor who is truly dedicated towards learning for students.”
