Dr Ying Zhang, Associate Dean for China Business and Relations at Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) was named as one of the world’s 40 best business school professors under 40 by Poets&Quants, an online platform covering business school matters. The Poets&Quants list was announced on 17 April 2015.

Poets&Quants selected the ‘40 best under 40 business school professors’ worldwide based on excellence in research, combined with world-class teaching prowess. Out of the more than 100 nominations, Poets&Quants chose RSM’s 33-year-old Assistant Professor Ying Zhang for this list for “her curiosity-based learning approach as a teacher, opting to digest the latest literature rather than require any textbooks.” Other business school academics in this list include professors from Harvard Business School, INSEAD, NYU Stern, Wharton, Yale School of Management, IE Business School, MIT Sloan, and London Business School.
