Harborne (Gus) Stuart joined New York University Stern School of Business as a Visiting Associate Professor in August 2008.

Prior to joining NYU Stern, Professor Stuart was an Associate Professor at Columbia University's Graduate School of Business, an Assistant Professor at Harvard University's Graduate School of Business, and a Visiting Associate Professor at MIT Sloan School of Business. Earlier, he developed and implemented information systems in high-technology, manufacturing companies.

Professor Stuart specializes in the development of business theory using game-theory approaches. His research centers on the further development of interactive decision theory, which focuses on strategic uncertainty, and on added value theory, which uses cooperative game theory to study businesses as the central players in economic value creation.
