We welcome and support inter-disciplinary and innovative approaches in research.
Our researchers’ work has recently been published in journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, the Journal of International Business Studies, Management Science, Organization Science, Administrative Science Quarterly, and the Strategic Management Journal.
