He received his B.A. in Economics from Yale University in 1976 and his Ph.D. in Economics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1980.

He is also known for his work on the environmental Kuznets curve.[2] He frequently collaborated with Harvard professor Elhanan Helpman, producing three books together: Innovation and Growth in the Global Economy, Special Interest Politics, and Interest Groups and Trade Policy.[3] In 2009, Grossman received an honorary doctorate in Economics from the University of St. Gallen. Grossman received the 2015 Onassis Prize for International Trade.[4] In 2016, Grossman received an honorary doctorate in Economics from the University of Minho.
