Marvin Zonis Bio

The first University of Chicago professor to teach a course on the effects of digital technologies on global business, Marvin Zonis is Professor Emeritus in the Graduate School of Business, where he teaches courses on international political economy, leadership, and e-commerce. He also consults to corporations and professional asset management firms throughout the world, helping them to identify, assess, and manage their political risks in the changing global environment; and is co-founder and chairman of DSD, a software development company based in Moscow and Chicago.What unites all of these activities is Zonis’ unique understanding of how politics, economics, and emergent technologies intersect, and how these intersections determine certain regions’ prospects for economic growth and business success.In light of these global challenges, a true understanding of business leadership is more essential than ever. Putting his knowledge and business acumen to that specific use, Dr. Marvin Zonis shares the ins and outs of globalization, digital technologies, emerging markets, Middle Eastern politics, the oil industry, Russia, and US foreign policy with audiences throughout the country. His writings on these subjects have been published in The Financial Times, The New York Times, and The International Herald Tribune, among many others, and he has appeared on numerous network television news programs, including Nightline and CNN’s Larry King Live.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Marvin Zonis and other top speakers and celebrities.
