Andrew King

Professor of Business Administration


Professor Andrew A. King conducts research on a number of topics related to business strategy.  He is well known for his publications on business and the natural environment, but he believes, that his biggest impact has been as a mentor and advisor.  His students are now distinguished academics and leaders at top institutions throughout the world.  In 2015, Andy was the second person to receive a Distinguished Scholar Award from the Academy of Management’s ONE Division for “contributions…central to the development of the field of environmental management/sustainable business.”

Andy is also well known for his research on self-regulatory institutions.  His publications with Mike Lenox (Darden) on the efficacy of the Chemical Industry’s Responsible Care Program helped change both private and public policy.  More recently, his work on self-regulation has uncovered when norms facilitate transfer and use of private information.

Andy is also an innovator in business education.  He is the author of several teaching cases and modules.  With Bob Burnham (Tuck), he has created games to illustrate competitive game theory, cooperative game theory, technology diffusion, market signaling, and ecosystem management.  With John Sterman (MIT), he developed a modern version of the classic “Fishbanks” strategy game.

Andy has been a Marvin Bower Fellow at the Harvard Business School, an Aspen Institute Faculty Pioneer, and an Academy of Management Journal Best Paper Award winner
