Former IMD President Returns to Harvard Business School to Teach

John Wells, who served briefly as president of Switzerland’s IMD business school, has returned to Harvard Business School (HBS), where he will once again teach strategy, the Financial Times reports.

Wells, who was appointed to serve as IMD’s president in April 2008, left his alma mater HBS to take the post. But he quit in June 2010, and in December 2010 he was replaced there by long-term IMD professor Dominique Turpin.

Back at HBS, Wells teaches the first-year core course in strategy and a second-year elective course in strategic agility. He also teaches as part of several HBS executive education programs.

Wells got his MBA from HBS in 1979, with notable classmates including Jeff Skilling, former chief executive of Enron, Meg Whitman, former chief executive of eBay and Archie Norman, chairman of UK television company ITV.
