Harborne (“Gus”) Stuart specializes in the development of business theory using game-theoretic approaches. His research includes the further development of “interactive decision theory,” which takes strategic uncertainty as the primary focus, and “value-based strategy,” which uses cooperative game theory to study businesses as the central players in economic value creation. Application of the research is principally to the fields of strategy and negotiations.
Professor Stuart has been a Clinical Professor at NYU Stern School of Business, an Associate Professor at Columbia University's Graduate School of Business, a Visiting Associate Professor at MIT Sloan School of Business, and an Assistant Professor at Harvard University's Graduate School of Business. He received his B.A., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from Harvard University. Prior to receiving his PhD, he spent eight years developing and implementing information systems in high-technology manufacturing companies.
