Teck-Hua Ho (Chinese: 何德华; pinyin: Hé Déhuá) is a Tan Chin Tuan Centennial Professor[1] at the National University of Singapore (NUS). He is also the senior deputy president and provost at NUS.[2][3] Prior to joining NUS, he was the William Halford Jr. Family Professor of Marketing at the Haas School of Business (University of California, Berkeley).[4] He is also the executive chairman of AI Singapore,[5] a national research and development programme.


Ho obtained a bachelor's degree with first class honours in electrical engineering in 1985 and a master's degree in computer and information sciences in 1989 from NUS. He then obtained a master's degree in 1991 and a PhD in 1993 in decision sciences from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.


Prior to becoming senior deputy president and provost, Ho was deputy president of research and technology (2015-2017) and vice president of research strategy (2011-2012)[6] at NUS. He is also a professor of economics and marketing at the NUS Business School[7] and director of the NUS Centre for Behavioural Economics.[8]

From 2002 to 2015, Ho was a professor at the Haas School of Business.

While at the Haas School, he won numerous awards, including the Williamson Award,[10] named for the UC Berkeley faculty member Oliver E. Williamson, the 2009 Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences. The award is the Haas School’s highest faculty award, and celebrates honorees who best reflect the character and integrity associated with Williamson’s scholarly work and legacy. Ho has also won the Berkeley Distinguished Teaching Award[11] and three Earl F. Cheit Awards for Excellence in Teaching.[12]

From 1997 to 2002, Ho was associate professor of marketing at the Wharton School. Prior to his time at the Wharton School, he was assistant professor of operations and technology management at the UCLA Anderson School of Management.[13]
