- Strategic and international human resource management
- Entrepreneurship and innovation
The group is engaged with cross-disciplinary themes including health management, financial services, public sector, international development, innovation and entrepreneurship.
The Micro-Organisational Behaviour subgroup
Sitting within the group, the Micro-Organisational Behaviour subgroup aspires international recognition for research excellence advancing the scientific understanding of individual and group behaviuor at all levels within organisations.
The group aims to achieve this by conducting rigorous and cutting-edge research, and by publishing this research in major Organisational Behaviour (OB) outlets, such as Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Journal of Applied Psychology, Academy of Management Journal, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, or Organization Studies; as well as through further developing local, national, and international collaborations with leading scholars in OB and other related fields such as psychology.
Current research interests include leadership, small groups, emotions, and creativity. The group conducts mostly quantitative research, largely (but not exclusively) drawing on experimental, survey, and archival data collected in international contexts, including Europe, the United States, South America, and Asia. The group runs the Experimental Laboratory at Cambridge Judge Business School, and regularly offers developmental internal seminars as well as seminars with external speakers. The group is active in the PhD programme and welcomes involvement at all levels, from hosting visiting professors to working with student research volunteers.
