Kartik Ganju
Management Information Systems
McGill University


Kartik Ganju, a Fox School of Business PhD graduate in the Management Information Systems (MIS) concentration, recently accepted a tenure-track position at the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University, located in Montreal, Quebec. Ganju will continue pursuing his research and teach classes in Information Systems and Healthcare starting this fall.

Ganju joined the Fox School of Business in the fall of 2010 after moving to Philadelphia from India. His area of study was in the field of Information Systems, and his research specifically focused on the changes that the adoption of Electronic Medical Record systems have on hospitals. “Due to close connections between the school and a number of medical schools in the greater Philadelphia area, I was able to connect with healthcare professionals, brainstorm ideas for research projects, and present my findings,” Ganju says. This, in addition to the ability to work closely with an extremely diverse network of faculty, is what drove him to choose the Fox School’s PhD program over other schools.

Ganju graduated from the Fox PhD program in May. During his first two years at McGill, he will be teaching an introductory class in Information Systems, and move on to teaching classes on Healthcare, which aligns well with his own research interests.
