Socially Distanced greetings,
I’m Myles Thompson, the publisher for Columbia Business School Publishing, and because we won’t be together in Vancouver, I want to invite you to our Academy of Management virtual book exhibit on the Columbia University Blog.
I am honored to present our recent and forthcoming authors and titles for the Columbia Business School Publishing program. We seek to bridge leading academic thought and professional practice in order to move fields forward in strategy, digital business, innovation, and social enterprise.
