Organization and Management

Organization and Management comprises a broad group of scholars. Research and teaching in the discipline is informed by the recognition of complexities that pluralist demands from multiple stakeholder groups create for management.

Research and teaching in our discipline focus on three main areas:

  • strategy practices, managerial cognition, discourse, and institutional environments of organizations
  • sustainability management, corporate social responsibility, and business ethics
  • management and development of human resources as well as ‘doing’ gender and diversity in organizations

The interests of our group members extend further to innovation processes within companies and society at large, and to the study of academic work and management education as well as philosophy of management.

    Strong societal impact

    Our discipline has always been strong in terms of its societal impact. For example, our research projects within sustainability management inform companies and policy-makers in areas such as:

    • transition toward environmentally sustainable energy use in society
    • inclusive business for poverty alleviation in low-income emerging markets
    • sustainability innovation at large.

    We seek to accomplish societal impact in our core areas through innovative research projects involving business enterprises. Our faculty is also actively involved in delivering tailored executive education, in professional associations, and funding bodies.

    The discipline hosts Aalto Global Impact (AGI), which promotes and facilitates Aalto University’s research and education for global sustainable development.
