Recognized for excellence in teaching, Anita McGahan inspires her business students to think beyond the corporate bottom line and exhorts them to apply their talents and knowledge to the world's important problems. She's come to believe that professional education needs to be drastically revamped.

A Renaissance woman with a global outlook, McGahan focuses on the study of "wicked problems"-- problems that are difficult or impossible to solve because of incomplete, contradictory and changing requirements. She's turned her analytical, inquiring eye on global health, business model innovation, the end of oil, and even private military companies.

McGahan is Associate Dean and holds Rotman Chair of Management at the Rotman School and is cross-appointed at the Munk School of Public Affairs at University of Toronto. She's a Senior Associate at the Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness at Harvard University and Chief Economist in the Division of Global Health and Human Rights at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
