At the Department of Management Studies, members of faculty carry out their research in multiple areas, collaborating across disciplinary borders with internationally acknowledged scholars from all over the world. The research strategy of the department rests on the discipline’s core strength in understandings of organisational settings as sites, where decisions are made in the face of potentially incompatible demands.
