The Department of Strategy, Globalization and Society
The members of the Department of Strategy, Globalization and Society conduct research on the sources of organizations’ long-
term competitive advantage and sustainable performance. A founding belief of our department is that organizational strategies in a globalized world often have to take into account not only market dimensions (competition, price, differentiation, innovation, M&As, etc.
but also nonmarket dimensions (environmental aspects, regulation, macroeconomic policies, politics, media, ethical considerations, etc.).
Members of the Department include Jean-Philippe Bonardi, Olivier Cadot, Xavier Castañer, Annamaria Conti, Patrick Haack, José Mata, Guido Palazzo, Jeffrey Petty, and Déborah Philippe, and have published in leading international outlets such as the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Administrative Science Quarterly, American Economic Review, Journal of Business Venturing, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management, Journal of Management Studies, Research Policy or Strategic Management Journal.
Lausanne, located at the shore of Lake Geneva in Switzerland and surrounded by the Jura Mountains and the French Alps, is a beautiful and cosmopolitan spot to live and work.
