Chris Marquis, Co-Chair (Macro)

Chris Marquis is the Samuel C. Johnson Professor in Sustainable Global Enterprise and Professor of Management at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University.  Currently he is on leave of absence from Cornell and is a Visiting Professor of Social Innovation and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. He is also a Distinguished Visiting Professor at Peking University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Prior to joining Cornell, he worked for 10 years at Harvard Business School. Marquis received a PhD in Sociology and Business Administration from the University of Michigan.

Professor Marquis’ teaching and research is focused on how business can have a positive impact on society and the natural environment. He is currently pursuing several streams of research. The first seeks to assess how firms’ and entrepreneurs’ social and environmental strategies and activities can be designed to maximize both business and social value. The second explores how environmental sustainability and shared value initiatives have developed in China. Finally, the third examines institutional change processes in emerging markets. These research projects build on Marquis’ earlier work that analyzed how firm behavior is shaped by broader contexts such as embeddedness in geographic communities and how environmental conditions during founding periods leave a lasting imprint on organizations. In particular, Marquis’ prior research examined the effects of these processes in the contexts of community-based social networks and the evolution of the US banking industry.

Marquis has published in Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, American Sociological Review, Harvard Business Review, Organization Science, and Strategic Management Journal as well as a number of edited collections. He is an Associate Editor of Administrative Science Quarterly and an elected member of the Executive Committee of the International Association of Chinese Management Research (IACMR).
