"Each year, the outpouring for the 40 Best Business Professors Under 40 from our readers grows larger and larger," says Andrea Carter, the Poets&Quants staff writer who has written each 40-Under-40 feature since its debut in 2011.

Our editorial team is consistently impressed by the impact these professors are able to have at such early stages in their careers. It's truly remarkable."
The professors' impact can be seen in and out of the classroom. As teachers, they are known for going above and beyond to help MBA students thrive in business and in life, mentoring and guiding students through not only their MBA journey but in their career trajectory as well. As researchers, the best business professors under 40 have proven to be a group that cares about business as a force for good, leveraging their work as academics to uncover new knowledge about everything from mitigating climate change to using behavioral science as a lens into poverty, crime, violence, and other social problems.
This year's best 40 professors under 40 come from all backgrounds and disciplines, including such traditional areas as finance, accounting, and marketing, and more nontraditional areas like design thinking and behavioral science.
