Concurrently, Dr. Broadman joined the Faculty of Johns Hopkins University, where he is Director of the Council on Global Enterprise and Emerging Markets—a new practitioner-centered, independent, non-partisan forum for senior executives from around the world to candidly discuss how to best structure business alliances—at the graduate School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) in Washington DC.

He is a life-time Member of the Council on Foreign Relations and a Member of the Bretton Woods Committee.

In late 2015 Dr. Broadman stepped down as Senior Managing Director at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), where he founded and led PwC’s Management Consulting Emerging Markets Business Strategy Practice, which realized US$7 million in global annual fees and encompassed more than 25 professionals around the world.
