F. Christopher Eaglin

I am an Assistant Professor in the Strategy Area at the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University I work at the intersection of strategy and economic development, focusing on the following areas: understanding how entrepreneurs set strategies in uncertain environments, how entrepreneurship environments are governed, and more broadly how firm strategy-setting impacts the building of inclusive and sustainable economies. I rely primarily on econometric causal inference methods, which I combine with qualitative and survey techniques, to explore these questions, collaborating closely with entrepreneurs, financiers, non-profit organizations, and governments. 

I earned my Ph.D. in Business Strategy at Harvard Business School. Previously, I earned my bachelor's degree in Economics and Mathematics from Morehouse College, graduating as valedictorian. I also earned an M.Phil. in Development Economics and International Development from the University of Oxford as a Marshall Scholar. Prior to academia, I worked in the non-profit sector, financial services, consulting, and Fortune 500 companies developing infrastructure and services for marginalized populations in the US, UK, Brazil, and South Africa.
