Arindam Bhattacharya is a member of the Global Advantage, Industrial Goods, Operations, and Public Sector practices at Boston Consulting Group. He is a BCG Fellow, currently leading research on the radical shift in globalization and its implications for global firms, and working with colleagues on a book on the same topic. 

Previously, Arindam led BCG in India, was a member of the global leadership team of BCG’s Industrial Goods practice, and led the Industrial Goods practice in India. He was also the co-leader of BCG’s Global Advantage Initiative and a co-founder and Director of the Bruce Henderson Institute, BCG's new research institution. 

Arindam has worked extensively as a consultant and as a researcher. He focuses on portfolio and growth strategy, and the competitiveness of industrial companies. He has worked with India’s central and state governments on a variety of topics covering both policy development (supporting a planning commission on development of a five-year plan for Indian industry) and transformation of large public systems to drive outcome (transformation of state school systems in Haryana and Rajasthan). 

Arindam was a member of Confederation of Indian Industry's (CII) National Council for many years. He is member of International Advisory Council of Oxford India Center for Sustainable Development, Oxford University, a member of the International Advisory Board at the School of Public Policy, University of California San Diego, and a member of the advisory board and several expert committees set up by the government of India. 

He is a coauthor of the 2008 book “Globality: Competing with Everyone from Everywhere for Everything,” which tells the story of a new era of international business competition—one in which global companies that grew up in rapidly developing economies are challenging the big, developed-country corporations that have been the globalization leaders for the last two decades.
