Professor, Kellogg School of Management
Professor Timothy Feddersen joined the faculty at the Kellogg School of Management in 1995. He is the Wendell Hobbs Professor of Managerial Politics. Feddersen’s research centers on the manner in which elections aggregate dispersed information; the linkage between information and participation in elections; modeling ethically motivated agents in games; bargaining in legislatures; and the informal role of activists in the economy. He is currently investigating the impact of money in politics on the emergence of income inequality as well as the value of transparency in advisory committees. Feddersen also teaches several classes at Kellogg including Leadership and Strategic Crisis Management, Values-Based Leadership and Strategy in the Nonmarket Environment. All of these classes focus on the way leaders must anticipate the reaction of stakeholder groups both within and outside the organization including in the media, in legislatures, courts and in public opinion broadly.
