Ross School of Business


Our faculty address firm strategy and industry competition in domestic and international contexts, along with the social and economic environments within which firms operate. We are diverse in culture, research emphasis, and academic pursuits. We value these differences and the synergies they create.

Strategy faculty approach research from several different perspectives including economics, organization theory, social psychology, and sociology. We also strive to maintain methodological diversity. From inductive and case-method approaches to large sample archival studies to simulation and survey based primary research approaches and formal modeling, we embrace a variety of approaches.

Similarly, the research questions that we ask span the full range of strategy research discipline. From top management decision-making in large multi-business firms, multinational corporations to scope of the firm issues such as alliances and M&A's, from technology strategy and policy to service management and sociological influences on managerial decision-making, we cover a broad range of theoretical issues. This makes our group one of the broadest and most diversified in the country.
