Arijit’s research has been guided by the premise that a company’s strategy is a human construction and organizations become reflections of their top managers. His work on executive narcissism has appeared in Administrative Science Quarterly and Academy of Management Review. His recent research explores: 1) How is inequality addressed through institutional mechanisms and social movements? 2) How can small organizations enable large scale institutional change? 3) Can political leaders’ attributes explain the divergent social and economic indicators in Indian states? Arijit holds a PhD from The Pennsylvania State University and serves on the editorial board of the Administrative Science Quarterly.
