Local sociologist makes good

When Duncan Watts headed off to Yahoo!, I thought, well sure, that makes sense. But now I read that Joel Podolny is heading off from Yale management school to head up Apple University, and I’m wondering if we’ll be seeing a shift from sociologists heading off to management schools to sociologists heading off to corporate university-like training facilities.

Or put another way, it’s getting hard to keep arguing that sociology is not being paid attention to in the business world.
