Recently, Steve Ballmer announced his decision to step down from Microsoft’s board. He said in his letter to Satya, “I had not spent any time really contemplating my post-Microsoft life until my last day with the company. In the six months since leaving, I have become very busy. I see a combination of the Clippers, civic contribution, teaching and study taking a lot of time. So, where is he going to teach?
SAI recently reported that Steve Ballmer will teach an MBA class at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business in the fall, and a class at USC’s Marshall School of Business in the spring.
Helen Chang, assistant director of communications at Stanford’s Business School, told us Ballmer will be working with faculty member Susan Athey for a strategic management course called “TRAMGT588: Leading organizations.”
“We pair practitioners with academics scholars in teaching the MBA program, so Steve Ballmer and Susan Athey will be an example of that practitioner-scholar pairing,” Chang told us.
As for the spring semester, Ballmer will head to Los Angeles – closer to where his Clippers will be playing – and teach a course at University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business. We reached out to the Marshall School, which declined to offer more details about Ballmer’s class.
