PHD, Massachusetts Institute Of Technology
MS, Massachusetts Institute Of Technology

Dr. Afuah’s honors include the 2012 Academy of Management Review (AMR) Best Paper Award. AMR is the number one research journal in business and management. Professor Afuah’s honors also include the MBA Teacher of the Year award in 1999. His sixth book, Business Model Innovation, incorporates concepts such as crowdsourcing, the long tail, social media, disruptive technologies, open innovation, and less-is-more innovations. His second book, Internet Business Models and Strategies (co-authored with Christopher Tucci) has been translated into more than nine different languages, and has been adopted by dozens of schools to teach business models. His research has also been published in the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Strategic Management Journal, Research Policy, Industrial and Corporate Change, IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, and Economics of Innovation and New Technology. His latest research focuses on how crowdsourcing and business model innovation can be used to explain how to create wealth, especially in countries that have remained desperately poor despite being heavily endowed with natural resources.
