Professor Rangan earned his MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management and his PhD in political economy from Harvard University. His research explores the evolution of capitalism and how enterprises and all economic actors may better integrate performance and progress. In 2013 he initiated the Society for Progress, a fellowship of eminent philosophers, social scientists, and business leaders. He was associate editor of the Global Strategy Journal; chair of the World Economic Forum's Global Agenda Council on Emerging Multinationals; and a member of the board of trustees of Fundação Dom Cabral, a leading business in Brazil. 

Rangan's first book, Performance and Progress: Essays on Capitalism, Business, and Society, was published by Oxford University Press, 2015. His second book, Capitalism Beyond Mutuality? Perspectives Integrating Philosophy and Social Science, was also published by Oxford University Press in 2018. Professor Rangan has also published in top-rated journals, such as the Journal of International Business Studies, the Journal of International Management, and Administrative Science Quarterly.
