Provost Wendell Pritchett is pleased to announce the appointment of Martine Haas as the Anthony L. Davis Director of the Joseph H. Lauder Institute for Management and International Studies.

“Martine Haas is one of the most exciting and innovative thinkers about the future of global business,” says Provost Pritchett. “I am confident that she will be a great leader in advancing the vital mission of the Lauder Institute. This mission is more essential than ever in our increasingly globalized society, whose complex challenges require multi-faceted, interdisciplinary solutions.”

Haas is a tenured faculty member at the Wharton School who has taught at Penn since 2007. A native of South Africa and a U.S./UK citizen, she is a leading expert on global business, including collaboration in multinational firms, global teamwork, and the sociology and social psychology of organizations. She has published academic and managerial articles in leading journals, served on numerous editorial boards and in senior editorial roles, and received scholarly awards from the Academy of Management and Academy of International Business, as well as awards for teaching excellence in both the Wharton MBA core and Wharton undergraduate programs.

The Joseph H. Lauder Institute for Management & International Studies was founded by brothers Leonard and Ronald Lauder in 1983 in honor of their father, Joseph H. Lauder. It provides a fully integrated business education for a new generation of leaders, preparing them to speak the language of global business, culture, and politics in a world of specialization, change, and uncertainty. Its rigorous academic program, in which students earn a Master of Arts in International Studies, as well as an MBA from the Wharton School or a JD from the Law School, integrates teaching in tailored arts and sciences courses with advanced language study and cultural immersion experiences.
