Early life

Nitin Nohria HBS Dean On Ethics and Character Poets and Quants Poets

Nitin Nohria was born in Nohar, Rajasthan, India. His father, Kewal Nohria, was the former Chairman of Crompton Greaves in India and was an influence upon Nohria's decision to embark upon a career in business.

Nohria graduated from St. Columba's School in New Delhi, India following which he earned a B.Tech in Chemical Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay and earned a Ph.D. in Management from the MIT Sloan School of Management.


Nohria previously served as co-chair of the HBS Leadership Initiative and sat on the executive committee of the University's interfaculty initiative on advanced leadership. Nohria is working with fellow HBS professor Rakesh Khurana, the World Economic Forum and the Aspen Institute to create a business oath, like the MBA Oath, [1] that might be used globally. In a Harvard Business Review piece published in October 2008, Khurana and Nohria linked the connection between professionalism of a profession and the profession's ability to deliver value to society:

On May 4, 2010, Drew Gilpin Faust, President of Harvard University, appointed him Dean of Harvard Business School, effective July 1, 2010. He is the second HBS Dean, after John H. McArthur, born outside the United States and the first Dean since Dean Fouraker in the 1970s to live in the Dean's House on the HBS campus. In January 2014, he tendered an apology on behalf of Harvard Business School for the perceived sexism at the school.

In August 2017, Nohria argued that President Donald Trump's support for "isolationism" was detrimental to American economic prosperity, as it discouraged successful foreigners from immigrating to the United States.

Personal life

Nohria is married with two daughters, both of whom currently attend Harvard College.
