Steve Callander’s research interests lie at the intersection of business, politics, and society. As a researcher, he uses the tools of game theory to build models of political and economic institutions (legislatures, bureaucracies, markets, etc.) to understand how they work, how they can be designed better, and how business strategy can incorporate “beyond market” issues. At the GSB, Professor Callander teaches classes on Strategy Beyond Markets and Strategic Crisis Management in both the MBA program and a variety of Executive Education programs.

Focal Areas: Politics and Media, Energy and Environment, Housing and Infrastructure
