Harris School of Public Policy
Senior Lecturer

About John Burrows

I teach leadership, negotiations, decision-making, and organizational psychology to MPP, MA, and MBA students at the University of Chicago''s Harris School of Public Policy and Booth School of Business. I also teach MBA and EMBA students at Oxford University''s Saïd Business School where I hold an appointment as an Associate Fellow.

At Harris I teach two classes: Management Matters: Leadership, Strategy, and Getting Things Done (37411) and Leadership, Negotiations, and Management (58050), the first to full-time MPP students and the second to Executive MA students in the newly launched 1871 program. In the past I have taught two Booth MBA classes: Strategic Leadership (39002) and Strategies & Processes of Negotiation (38103). I have also lectured at the Pritzker School of Medicine.

Before moving into academia, I was a partner with the management consulting firm Accenture. I also held senior roles in sales and marketing at enterprise software companies including Siebel and Oracle. In those roles, I negotiated, sold, managed, and implemented complex, multi-national, multi-million dollar projects around the globe, and gained experience building and growing operations in the UK, USA, and Japan.

My teaching and research interests include organizational design, work-force analytics, social network analysis, and social capital.

I hold an MBA in General Management and a PhD in Behavioral Science from the University of Chicago, as well as an undergraduate degree from Vassar College.
