Political scientist and foreign policy expert Ian Bremmer has been named a Global Research Professor at New York University (NYU) and will teach at NYU ’s Stern School of Business, the school announced today. Bremmer is president and founder of Eurasia Group, which provides political risk analysis to financial, corporate and government clients.
In his new role, he will teach courses at Stern on the intersection between political science and business. He will also organize lectures and seminars at both the business school and the Center for Global Affairs at the NYU School of Continuing and Professional Studies.
“Ian Bremmer and the Eurasia Group set the standard of excellence for political risk analysis in business,” Stern Dean Peter Henry said in a statement. “In coming to teach at Stern, Ian brings significant experience to our classroom on the interplay between political risk, economic policy and growth, and helps us in our mission to prepare students for effective global engagement.”
Bremmer’s appointment may interest prospective NYU Stern applicants interested in policy and business. “I plan to challenge students to address the intersection between political science and the marketplace – business and finance,” Bremmer said in a statement, adding that he is very excited to engage with the next generation of policy and business leaders.
Founded by Bremmer in 1998 with just $25,000, Eurasia Group has grown to include offices in New York, Washington, DC, and London and feature a network of experts and resources around the world. In addition to serving as its president – a role he will maintain during his tenure at Stern – Bremmer is a frequent contributor to the Financial Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Newsweek, Harvard Business Review, and Foreign Affairs and regularly appears on CNBC, Fox News Channel, NPR and other networks.
