Adam M. Kleinbaum

Associate Professor of Business Administration


Adam M. Kleinbaum is an Associate Professor (untenured) in the Strategy and Management area at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth.  He teaches a core MBA course in organizational behavior, an elective seminar on social networks, and an international learning expedition to Israel. He is co-founder of the Dartmouth Interdisciplinary Network Research (DINR) Group.  He previously served on the faculty at Harvard Business School as a post-doctoral fellow; he also received his doctoral and undergraduate degrees at Harvard.

Adam’s research examines the antecedents and consequences of social network structures within organizations.  He has shown how formal and informal structures and processes and prior career history contribute to advantageous network structures.  A secondary stream of research explores how the structure of a firm’s internal communication network serves to enable coordination, innovation and, ultimately, firm performance.

His work has been published (or is forthcoming) in Administrative Science Quarterly, Organization Science, the Strategic Management Journal, the Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, Connections, and the Harvard Business Review.
