Nishant Dass

Associate Professor of Finance | Scheller College of Business at Georgia Institute of Technology

Nishant Dass grew up in New Delhi, India. After graduating from the National Institute of Technology in Jaipur (India), he attended graduate school, first at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and then at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Although he enjoyed the Midwestern lifestyle and culture (and those lovely fall colors!), he could not resist the opportunity to move to Europe to pursue his PhD degree at one of the world's premier business schools – INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France. Upon completing his PhD in 2007, he moved back to the United States, starting his academic career at Georgia Tech. He is now a tenured professor of finance at the Scheller College of Business, Georgia Tech.

Dr. Dass' teaching interests are in innovative technologies (such as Blockchain and IoT), entrepreneurship, corporate finance, and international finance. His research interests lie in empirical corporate finance, with a special focus on financial intermediation, corporate governance, innovation, and supply chains. His papers have been presented in various academic conferences, such as the AFA, WFA, EFA, FIRS, FMA, NY Fed, and the World Bank. He has published papers in the Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Financial Economics, and Review of Finance. His work has also been cited in The New York Times.

Nishant calls Atlanta his home now and loves the city for its Southern charm and cosmopolitan culture. In his spare time, he enjoys architecture, designing furniture, landscape and portrait photography, painting water colors, cooking for his family and friends, traveling to different countries, listening to ambient music, and reading non-fiction.
