Canada Research Chair and Associate Professor, Business, University of Calgary

Anup Srivastava joined the Haskayne School of Business in July 2018. Previously, he worked at as an assistant professor at Kellogg School of Management (Northwestern University) and Tuck School of Business (Dartmouth College) which he left as an associate professor.

In October 2018, Anup became Haskayne's first Canada Research Chair awarded by the Government of Canada.

Anup holds a BTech in Mechanical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (1984-88), MBA in Finance from the University of Delhi (1988-90), and PhD in Accounting from Texas A&M University (2003-2008).

Anup brings vast corporate experience of almost fourteen years. He has worked as a banker, consultant, and corporate executive in the East and West Coast cities of the United States and India. He has worked at billion-dollar conglomerates as well as cash-strapped startups.

Anup is one of the foremost researchers on the changing economics of listed companies. He examines how knowledge-based companies, such as Facebook, Alphabet, and Microsoft, supplant asset- and infrastructure-intensive companies, such as Walmart, General Motors, and Exxon-Mobil, in capital creation and employment generation.

His research highlights key elements disrupted by this progression: accelerating corporate demise and emerging hyper-competition; changing role of the board of directors; shifts in executive incentive plans; new auditing and financial reporting requirements; and a growing need for highly skilled human capital.

Anup has published numerous articles in journals classified in Financial Times (FT-50). Anup has not only published in elite scholarly journals, such as Management Science, Accounting Review, Journal of Accounting and Economics, Journal of Financial Economics, and Review of Accounting Studies but also in the practitioner-oriented Harvard Business Review, widely read by senior executives and managers. Two of his papers are typically included in the curricula of top PhD programs in accounting. One of them is listed in the Hall of Fame of the Journal of Financial Economics, and is one of the most cited papers in the field of accounting and finance.

Anup has published a unique series of articles in Harvard Business Review, on the underlying economics, valuation, and financial reporting issues of digital companies.

Anup has been interviewed or quoted by leading media outlets, such as Bloomberg, Financial Times, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Economist Intelligence Unit, National Public Radio, Forbes, Chicago Tribune, Barrons, and Reuters.

Anup has presented his work in seminar format at 45 of the world’s top universities, in 10 different countries.
