Ezra Zuckerman is the Nanyang Technological University Professor; a Professor of Technological Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Strategic Management; and Chair of the MIT Sloan PhD Program at the MIT Sloan School of Management. 

An economic sociologist with a focus on social network analysis, Zuckerman  studies how social structures of various kinds emerge and influence behavior and key outcomes for individuals, teams, and organizations. His current research projects include a study of industry peer networks—exclusive groups of noncompeting peer firms from the same industry that gather on a regular basis to learn from one another’s experiences and to motivate one another to achieve higher performance. 

Zuckerman holds a BA in political science from Columbia University as well as an MA and a PhD in sociology from the University of Chicago.
