Associate Professor of Business Administration
Professor Blanchard studies the economics and politics of globalization. Her work centers on two of the most important questions facing firms and policy-makers today. How can education policy be used to complement increased trade so that the majority of workers share in the aggregate gains from globalization? And, how are trade agreements evolving in response to global supply chains and foreign direct investment, and what do these changes mean for the future of global cooperation at the World Trade Organization?
Professor Blanchard teaches the second core economics course, Global Economics for Managers, and a research to practice seminar on Firms, Governments, and the Future of Trade Policy.
Prior to joining the Tuck faculty, she was an assistant professor of economics at the University of Virginia, where she earned the “All University Teaching Award” in 2007. She graduated with honors from Wellesley College and holds M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Economics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Leadership demands a careful understanding of how the global economy works and how it is changing. It is increasingly important for the business community to play a thoughtful and active role in responding to the shifting contours of the global economy.
