Professor Metin Sengul studies the interdependence between firms’ internal organizational choices and their product-market competitive behavior and performance. Accordingly, he seeks to understand the contextual determinants of instruments of corporate control and how these instruments influence an organization’s ability to capture value under various threats. He focuses on providing insight into strategic decisions by managers of multiunit-multimarket firms, such as multi-industry firms, business groups, and multinationals. His work has been published or is forthcoming in leading journals, including the Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management, Leadership Quarterly, and Organization Studies, as well as in edited books.
Professor Sengul is an active member of a number of professional associations, including Academy of Management and Strategic Management Society. Before graduate school, he worked as a freelance consultant, serving primarily the healthcare industry. He also co-founded an advertisement agency, wherein he served as a managing-partner.
His teaching interests are in the areas of strategic management, global strategy, competitive analysis, and research methods. He currently teaches the capstone undergraduate strategy course and M.B.A. elective Industry & Competitive Analysis.
