Mike Rosenberg is a Professor of the Practice of Management in the Strategic Management Department of IESE Business School. He began teaching part time in the MBA and Global Executive programs in 1999 and joined the faculty on a full time basis in 2003.
Professor Rosenberg lectures in IESE’s MBA and Executive Education programs, where he teaches strategy, geo-politics, and sustainability and publishes a weekly blog on these topics under the title Doing Business on the Earth.
His first book, titled Strategy and Sustainability (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015), is an exploration of the link between business and the environment and looks at the issue more from the perspective of business executives rather than that of environmentalists. The second book is titled Strategy and Geopolitics (Emerald, 2017) and is written to encourage business leaders to pay more attention to what is happening around the planet. Both books offer his own frameworks for looking at these two issues. His latest book, Learning to Fly (Anthem, 2022) is about how to manage your career throughout life given the complexity of today’s world.
From 2004-2009, Professor Rosenberg managed IESE’s International Executive Education Unit. He was also the Academic Director for the Advanced Management Program in Media Entertainment and has co-edited Managing Media Businesses (Palgrave Macmillan, 2017), which is based on the course. Rosenberg is also the Academic Director for a Short Focused Program called Leading in a Matrix Organization at IESE’s campus in New York City, as well as a for a number of Custom Programs for corporate clients of the school.
