The Strategy & International Business subject group

Back to Subject groups

About the subject group

Members of the Strategy & International Business group have broad research interests in the areas of strategy, organisation theory and international business. They actively contribute to both academic and business communities.

Contributions of the group’s faculty are inter-disciplinary and shed light on critical competitive, economic, social and environmental issues facing organisations and their top leaders. The group’s research has uncovered how corporations deal with disruptive events and compete in an increasingly complex global environment with a diverse set of socio-political and economic influences. A distinctive feature of the group is its ability to produce leading research at the juxtaposition of how corporations achieve and sustain competitive viability, and how their social and environmental footprints can be examined and moderated through internal and external governance systems.

The research of the group falls broadly into the following categories:

  • Disruption, business models, and decision making in volatile environments (Shahzad Ansari, Mauro Guillén, Allègre Hadida, Yasemin Kor, Christopher Marquis, Kamal Munir, Peter Williamson)
  • Competitive dynamics and firm/industry renewal (Yasemin Kor, Jochem Kroezen, Kamal Munir)
  • Top management teams and corporate governance (Mauro Guillén, Yasemin Kor, Christopher Marquis, Lionel Paolella) 
  • Business, technology and society (Shahzad Ansari, Mauro Guillén, Yasemin Kor, Jochem Kroezen, Christopher Marquis, Kamal Munir, Lionel Paolella)
  • Categorisation processes and social structures of markets (Kamal Munir, Lionel Paolella)
  • Social stability and change (Shahzad Ansari, Jochem Kroezen, Christopher Marquis, Kamal Munir)
  • Cultural industries (Allègre Hadida, Jochem Kroezen) and legal services markets (Lionel Paolella)
  • Political economy and evolution of Chinese businesses (Christopher Marquis, Peter Williamson)

The members of this group are cited and quoted regularly in the world media including the Financial Times, the Wall Street Journal and Business Week among others. They have worked with some of the world’s leading organisations through collaborative research or executive education and have advised various multilateral agencies through collaborative research, executive education and advisory roles.

Industry engagement

Members of the Strategy & International Business group engage deeply with the business community, multilateral agencies and governments through their impactful research, innovative executive education programmes and area expertise. Members of the group have spearheaded several research projects and grants funded by companies such as Boeing, Booz Allen Hamilton and Newton Asset Management (a division of BNY Mellon Bank). They have advised major multilateral agencies such as the World Bank, the European Commission, the Asian Development Bank and UNCTAD, as well as governments of countries such as Greece and Pakistan.

Below are some examples of recent and current research projects that faculty members have been conducting in collaboration with or in support of businesses.

  • Shaz Ansari works as a consultant at Thinfilms, a New Jersey firm providing thin film services to over 150 corporations in the hybrid microelectronics, semiconductor, optical, medical and sensor industries. He has also delivered executive education and training to several multinational corporations.
  • Chris Coleridge founded and is now the CEO of Carbon13, a startup accelerator funded by ARM, Volkswagen, BP, EY and DLA Piper. The accelerator works to foster scalable ventures with the potential to take 10 million tonnes of CO2 per annum out of the emissions base through technically- or behaviourally-based innovations across the energy, mobility, manufacturing, buildings, agriculture and finance sectors.
  • Yasemin Kor is collaborating with the Cambridge Global Food Security Initiative on projects for the food industry, to enhance sustainability and resilience.
  • Chris Marquis is on the advisory board of leading China-focused media platform The China Project and works closely with a number of CJBS’s leading executive education clients such as consulting firm BCG on climate, sustainability and ESG topics.
  • Kamal Munir frequently consults with blue chip and technology firms facing disruption related challenges. He also serves on the advisory board of a healthcare company and is involved with start-ups in the technology space. Dr Munir also consults for governments and multilateral institutions in the area of competitiveness at the national and industry levels. He serves as an Advisor to OECD’s Centre on Philanthropy. Dr Munir is currently working with a global network of professional accounting and advisory firms on issues related to diversity and inclusion.
  • Lionel Paolella has been advising organisations on ways to foster equity, diversity and inclusion. He has also delivered executive education and training programmes on diversity to several corporations.
  • Peter Williamson has been advising several multinationals and Chinese companies on globalisation strategies and development of their business ecosystems. He currently serves as a non-executive director of the global renewal energy firm Green Gas International and non-executive chairman of the global digital process automation company Bizagi.
