Anil K. Gupta is an expert in emerging markets, frugal innovation, global strategy and organization, and corporate innovation and entrepreneurship. He is also listed among the Thinkers50, widely recognized as the first, and definitive, compilation of the world’s 50 foremost business thinkers. The list is published every two years since 2001 by British business consultants and authors Stuart Crainer and Des Dearlove, as “the essential guide to which business thinkers and ideas are in – and which have been consigned to business history.”

Gupta regularly attends the World Economic Forum in Davos. He co-authored “The Silk Road Rediscovered” (Wiley, 2014), on how Indian and Chinese companies grow globally stronger by winning in each other's markets.

Gupta is one of just three professors in the world to be elected by academic peers as a Lifetime Fellow of the most prestigious bodies in his field: Academy of Management, Strategic Management Society and Academy of International Business. He also is a regular contributor to World Economic Forum summits including the annual meeting in Davos and the regional meetings in China, India and the Middle East.
