He could have been a neurobiologist or joined the KGB. Instead he chose to study business, which has led to a rewarding career as a popular professor at Michigan Ross. Now online business education magazine Poets & Quants has named Professor Maxim Sytch as one the world’s 40 best business school professors under the age of 40.
Sytch, a professor of management and organizations, studies how inter-organizational ties form, evolve, and create globally connected social systems. He also looks at how those systems impact organizational behavior and outcomes.
Says Poets & Quants: “...Maxim Sytch has a resume filled with achievements—eight pages of them, to be exact. From research publications and book reviews to conference presentations and academic awards, this 35-year-old at the University of Michigan’s Ross School is definitely a star professor on the rise.”
One thing you might not know about Sytch: He attended the same school as Vladimir Lenin.
