UVA Darden’s Belmi Named to ‘Best 40 Under 40’ Professors List

By Dave Hendrick

The MBA-focused publication Poets & Quants has included University of Virginia Darden School of Business Professor Peter Belmi on its list of the Best 40 Under 40 Professors.

In addition to citing his research into mitigating inequality, the publication notes the acclaim Belmi has gained for his actions in the classroom, where he has become a sought-after professor.

Holding a Ph.D. from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Belmi teaches both the core “Leading Organizations” course along with “The Paths to Power” elective at Darden. A noted scholar whose influence has reached mainstream business outlets like The Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal, Belmi truly shines in the classroom. Working among some of the world’s top case professors, the 32 year-old Belmi more than holds his own, ranking among the top 10% of faculty in student evaluations during his first two years at the program – and was even nominated for the Outstanding Faculty Award in 2017.  For Belmi, the biggest reward isn’t the notoriety; it is watching the impact that students make once they leave his classroom.

Darden was recently ranked No. 1 for Best Professors by The Princeton Review.
