Jeffrey J. Reuer joined Purdue University in 2008 as the Blake Family Endowed Chair in Strategic Management and Governance. He is also the Area Head of Strategic Management.  Previously, he was the Boyd W. Harris, Jr. Distinguished Scholar and Professor of Strategic Management at the University of North Carolina.  He started his academic career on the faculty of INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France.

Professor Reuer has led courses and seminars on business and corporate strategy, strategic investment decisions, and collaborative strategy in many graduate degree programs and organizations (e.g., Areva, Eli Lilly, Ernst and Young, Euroforum, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, LG, McKinsey, NEC, Owens Corning, Pfizer, Philips International BV, and the World Bank).  He has taught in executive education programs at Harvard Business School, Duke University, INSEAD, the Indian School of Business, the University of Mannheim in Germany, the University of St. Gallen in Switzerland, and Peking University.  He is a recipient of several MBA teaching awards, including the Excellence in Teaching Award from Duke University for the best core course in the weekend executive MBA program.

Professor Reuer serves as an Associate Editor of the Strategic Management Journal and as a Consulting Editor for the Journal of International Business Studies.  He has received five best reviewer awards for his service.  He is a Past Chair of the Business Policy and Strategy (BPS) Division of the Academy of Management, and has also served on that organization's Executive Committee and Research Committee.  He was a program chair of the Strategic Management Society’s (SMS’) conferences in Washington, DC and in Guangzhou, China.  He is a co-founder of the SMS’ Cooperative Strategies Interest Group.  With colleagues at Northwestern he co-founded the Midwest Strategy Meetings, an annual conference geared towards paper and career development for junior faculty and doctoral students at a consortium of business schools.  He has guest-edited several special issues and organized specialty conferences, and he is currently co-editing a special issue of the Strategic Management Journal on The Interplay Between Competition and Cooperation (with Hoffmann, Lavie, and Shipilov).  He is also a co-editor of a Virtual Special Issue devoted to Alliance Governance (with Ariño, Poppo, and Zenger).

Professor Reuer’s research uses organizational economics to investigate firms’ external corporate development activities and growth options (e.g., strategic alliances, acquisitions, and initial public offerings). Recent projects are on the governance and design of alliances, collaborative strategies, and applications of information economics to various corporate and international strategy problems.  He is a Fellow of the Strategic Management Society and was the first recipient of the SMS’ Emerging Scholar Award. He is widely published in the field's major academic journals and has been invited to present papers at more than eighty universities throughout the world. His publication credits also include eight published or forthcoming books.  Managerial insights of his research have also appeared as articles and research briefings in the Harvard Business Review, MIT Sloan Management Review, Financial Times, and the Journal of Applied Corporate Finance.
