Scott Kuban has a Ph.D. in strategic management from the Mays Business School, Texas A&M University. His research focuses primarily on two topics: entrepreneurial differences and top managers. Entrepreneurial differences include those between entrepreneurs and professional managers, as well as differences between smaller, recently formed firms and larger, more established firms. In investigating top managers, Dr. Kuban has examined CEOs, executives, and the boards that oversee them in areas such as political activities and social capital. He has done research for both the Department of Defense and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. His work has been published in the Academy of Management Annals. Prior to pursuing graduate studies, Dr. Kuban worked for two Fortune 100 companies, the federal government and several tech startups, including his own. He also serves on the board of a non-profit foundation.


Professor Kuban teaches Strategic Management, a capstone course that all undergraduate business majors take in their senior year.
