About me

I am Pablo Hernandez-Lagos, I recently joined Sy Syms School of Business at Yeshiva University as an associate professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship.

I study the economic forces underlying effective incentives within the firm, as well as global entrepreneurship, peace and prosperity.

Media coverage of my work includes: Politico and on the effect of tax-breaks for investment in distressed communities on employment; The Financial Times on employee compensation and incentives; The Hill and The Times of India on the importance of technology and middle-class markets in India, China, Africa and Latin America for multinational firms; on the origins of peace and prosperity (most read in August 2016) and [email protected] on entrepreneurial spending and survival.

I hold a PhD from UC Berkeley-Haas School of Business (BPP group) and a BSc in Industrial Engineering from Universidad de Chile. I also hold a MSc in Applied Economics from the Universidad de Chile-CEA and a MSc in Business Administration from UC Berkeley-Haas School of Business. Prior to my doctoral studies, I participated in the creation of Chile’s National Innovation Strategy.

I teach Strategy and Leadership. I have also taught Corporate Finance and Mathematics for Social Scientists at NYU AD, Principles of Economics at the Universidad de Los Andes, and graduate and undergraduate courses in management and strategy, as well as executive training to entrepreneurs outside academia. I co-founded ChileSeminars at UC Berkeley (academic speakers share their research with professionals and entrepreneurs).
