Management and Organization
The Management and Organization Department includes faculty who study the human component of organizations and focus on how to effectively manage and develop strategy for all types of organizations. Most managers recognize that leadership, communication, organization design, organization change, and other aspects of organizational and strategic studies are critical competencies for success. The Management and Organization Department offers undergraduate concentrations in Human Resources and Leadership, MBA concentrations in Leadership and Management, and a PhD in Organization Studies.

She earned her Ph.D. from the Sloan School at MIT, her MBA from HBS, and her B.S. from University of Illinois at Urbana. Tripsas' research examines how radical technological change transforms industries, exploring both innovation in established firms, and entrepreneurial opportunities.
METIN SENGUL UPCOMING ARTICLE
Metin Sengul has an upcoming article in Administrative Science Quarterly: Incentive Life-Cycles: Learning and the Division of Value Within Firms. This paper explores why and how the division of value within firms – between a firm and its employees – evolves under a given incentive regime. Two distinct learning processes arise in response to incentive regimes: productive learning and adverse learning.
RICHARD NIELSEN ARTICLE ACCEPTED
Richard Nielsen’s article, Reintegrating Ethics and Institutional Theory, has been accepted by the Journal of Business Ethics. Understanding how ethics and institutional systems influence each other can advance our understanding of the nature and causes of structural organizational ethics issues and help guide potential reforms. The article uses the recession of 2008-2009 to look at the interplay of these elements.
MICHAEL PRATT ARTICLE PUBLISHED
Michael Pratt’s article, When Should I Trust My Gut? Linking Domain Expertise to Intuitive Decision-making Effectiveness, will be published in Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes. The article focuses on circumstances in which intuitive decision making is effective relative to analytical decision making. Results demonstrate the importance of domain expertise in intuitive decision making and carry theoretical and practical implications.
SPOTLIGHT ON RESEARCH
Mohan Subramaniam studies strategic issues faced by multinationals. One of his current research projects finds that the intensity of global rivalry among two multinationals increases the likelihood of these corporations forming an alliance with one another. Certain characteristics of the countries in which these alliances occur, such as their regulatory framework and cultural distance, also influence this likelihood.
