DIEM welcomes visiting professor Koen Heimeriks

Koen Heimeriks joined the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management in May 2016 and will spend a full year with Aalto.

He will be conducting research on strategic management and teaching e.g. the course Research Assignment in Strategy and Venturing.

Koen studies how companies develop their corporate development (i.e., alliance, acquisition, and divestiture) capabilities to realize corporate growth in high-velocity settings. His work features in numerous top journals, including Academy of Management Journal, Harvard Business Review, Journal of Management Studies, Organization Science, Strategic Management Journal, and Strategic Organization. 

Besides his research, he trains, consults for, and works with executives at publicly listed and large private firms operating in volatile settings, e.g., high-tech and chemical industries. Both his research and teaching won him prestigious international prizes.

 

Welcome Koen!
