What is Strategy and Organization and who are we?
The Strategy and Organization Area focuses on research and teaching that addresses the strategies and structuring of organizations, the process by which strategies form and change, their social determinants, and the relationship between organizations and their economic, political, social and natural environments. We study and teach management from a holistic and integrative perspective to understand important real-life phenomena as well as theory-building.
