Earlier this month, it was announced that Guhan Subramanian will succeed Bob Mnookin as chair of the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School. This is excellent news. More here, including these words from HLS Dean Manning:
“Harvard Law School and the entire negotiation community are fortunate indeed to see this torch passed from one exceptional academic leader to another,” said John F. Manning ’85, dean of Harvard Law School. “Bob Mnookin’s scholarship and interdisciplinary approach to negotiation have enriched not just the Program on Negotiation, but the entire field of negotiation. I’m confident that Guhan Subramanian – a great scholar, teacher, and academic innovator and a valued member of both the HLS and HBS faculties – will continue to advance PON’s leadership in the many communities that intersect with its important work.”
I have so much respect for Bob and Guhan — they are both such wonderful teachers and prolific scholars — it will be exciting to see what happens next.
