Much of Raghunathan’s recent research has been conducted along with his doctoral students.
“My students taught me a lot about how IT is altering the way business gets done and about the unique economic challenges these new ways pose to firms,” he said. “I am especially proud to see that my students have continued to work with me on exciting research even after they graduated.”
During his service as the area coordinator for information systems in the Jindal School from 2007-14, Raghunathan increased graduate enrollment from 120 to 800, increased the undergraduate enrollment from 100 to 400, launched the Master of Science in Business Analytics degree program, introduced several certificate programs and established an industry advisory board.

Raghunathan received his bachelor of technology from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, and his MBA from the India Institute of Management, Calcutta. Raghunathan earned his PhD in business administration from the University of Pittsburgh.
The University of Texas System supports the professorship.
