subjects Michael Porter writes about Competition, Corporate Strategy, International Business
Michael Porter's profile Bishop William Lawrence University Professor, based at Harvard Business School. A University professorship is the highest professional recognition that can be given to a Harvard faculty member. Professor Porter is the fourth faculty member in Harvard Business School history to earn this distinction, and is one of about 15 current University Professors at Harvard.

Professor Porter is a leading authority on competitive strategy and the competitiveness and economic development of nations, states, and regions. He received a B.S.E. with high honors in aerospace and mechanical engineering from Princeton University in 1969, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and Tau Beta Pi. He received an M.B.A. with high distinction in 1971 from the Harvard Business School, where he was a George F. Baker Scholar, and a Ph.D. in Business Economics from Harvard University in 1973.

Professor Porter's ideas on strategy have now become the foundation for the required strategy course at the Harvard Business School, and is taught in virtually every business school in the world. Professor Porter currently leads Harvard's programs for chief executive officers of billion dollar and larger corporations and created a University-wide course on the microeconomics of economic development that is also taught simultaneously, using Internet-delivered material, in 17 other universities. Professor Porter also speaks widely on competitive strategy and international competitiveness to business and government audiences throughout the world. In 2001, Harvard Business School and Harvard University jointly created the Institute for Strategy and Competitiveness, led by Professor Porter, to further his work.

Professor Porter is the author of 16 books and over 100 articles. His book, Competitive Strategy: Techniques for Analyzing Industries and Competitors, published in 1980, is in its 58th printing and has been translated into seventeen languages. His second major strategy book, Competitive Advantage: Creating and Sustaining Superior Performance, was published in 1985 and is in its 34th printing. His book On Competition (1998) includes eleven articles from the Harvard Business Review as well as two entirely new articles: 'Clusters and Competition' and 'Competing Across Locations'. His Harvard Business Review article 'What is Strategy?' is the foundation for a third major strategy book due to be completed early next year. His article 'Strategy and the Internet' (2001) won for Professor Porter an unprecedented third first-place McKinsey Award as the best Harvard Business Review article of the year, and his fourth McKinsey Award overall.
