I am Deepak Hegde, Associate Professor at New York University’s Stern School of Business. I teach graduate courses on Competitive Strategy and Corporate Strategy at Stern.

My research focuses on innovation, intellectual property rights, and entrepreneurship. My work has been published in journals such as Science, Nature Biotechnology, Management Science, Organization Science, Journal of Law & Economics, Journal of Economics & Management Strategy, Yale Journal of Law & Technology, and Research Policy. I am a recipient of the Kauffman Junior Faculty Fellowship (in 2012), the Kauffman Dissertation Fellowship (in 2009), and the Thomas Alva Edison Fellowship (awarded by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for 2014-2015). I was named one of “world’s best 40 under 40 business school professors” by Poets & Quants (in 2015).

Prior to joining Stern’s Management and Organizations department in July 2010, I had worked at Bosch, a large technology-based German company, and Abt Associates, a research and consulting firm for the U.S. government and business sectors.  I earned my B.E. with distinction in Industrial Engineering from the Mysore University, M.S. in Public Policy from the Georgia Institute of Technology, and Ph.D. in Business Administration from the University of California, Berkeley.
