M. P. Narayanan

I am the Robert Morrison Hoffer Professor of Business Administration and Professor of Finance at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. I received my Ph.D. in Finance from Northwestern University, and my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in electrical engineering from leading institutions in India. I have lived in the U.S. for 41 years now, 33 of which have been in Ann Arbor. Besides teaching and research, I have been involved extensively in executive development and consulting for businesses around the world.
I was born and brought up in Chennai in south India. I have been traveling to India 3 to 4 times a year for almost 20 years for professional and personal reasons. I am deeply interested in history, sociology, and anthropology, and these areas constitute the bulk of my personal reading. My wife Lakshmi, who will be accompanying me, and I are avid travelers; we enjoy seeing new places, sampling varied cuisines, and meeting people from different parts of the world. I play tennis regularly and we have been to all four grand slam events. Lakshmi is an active member of the Ann Arbor Thrift Shop and regularly volunteers at UM’s Clements Library. Our one daughter and two grandchildren (7 and 5) live near Philadelphia.
We absolutely love living in Ann Arbor and being associated with UM. Go Blue!
