Strategy and Management of Organizations in Emerging Economies

About the Group

In the context of emerging economies, we focus on the research processes and practices related to: strategy development and implementation, organizational capabilities, knowledge transfer, governance and human resources management. We apply strategies and management theories through models and tools designed for decision making and sustainable development for organizations in emerging economies. Theoretical approaches to strategy, institutionalism, culture and stake holdings are the main pillars of our research program.
