Peter K. Schott, newly named as the Juan Trippe Professor of International Economics, focuses his research on how firms and workers respond to globalization.
Schott’s most recent projects examine the decline of U.S. manufacturing employment during the 2000s, the relative export quality of developing versus developed economies, and the relationship between trade policy and firm productivity.
A graduate of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, Schott earned his Ph.D. from the Anderson Graduate School of Management at the University of California-Los Angeles. He joined the Yale School of Management (SOM) in 1999 as assistant professor of economics and later became a full professor of economics at SOM with a secondary appointment in the Department of Economics. Since 2014, Schott has also served as executive director of the Yale Census Research Data Center, a branch of the New York Research Data Center.
Schott has contributed numerous articles, chapters, and reviews to academic journals and general media publications, including the Harvard Business Review, The Economist, The New Yorker, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. He has served as associate editor of the American Economic Review and as a member of the National Science Foundation Review Panel.
Schott has been honored twice with SOM’s Teaching Award, in the Executive M.B.A. Program and the Full-Time M.B.A. Program. His other honors include the Emerald Management Reviews Citations of Excellence Award and the Excellence in Refereeing Award from the American Economic Review. He is the recipient of two research grants from the National Science Foundation.
The Yale professor has provided consulting services for the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank, among other institutions. He has delivered numerous invited lectures at universities nationwide and in China, Japan, Spain, and Germany, among other countries. His executive teaching includes sessions at the Beijing CEO Summit, with the J.P. Morgan Chase Fellows, and for the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area in Tianjin, China.
