We bring together “master chefs”—creative scholars and skilled researchers—to produce and publish research-based solutions to contemporary business and leadership challenges. Our faculty bring a breadth and depth of expertise to discovery-oriented, collaborative, and interdisciplinary research that contributes to management science and practice.
Some of our current research projects include managing information and communicating organizational values, corporate social responsibility and social entrepreneurship, case studies and field research of sustainable business practices, and corporate board diversity.
Why is it called a kitchen?
A kitchen is a gathering place, and the Management Research Kitchen is a forum where faculty come together to discuss, propose, and pursue research projects, generate internal and external support, and collect input from stakeholders on their research needs and opportunities.
How do we develop the menu?
Research projects can stem from conceptual work, suggestions from students, sponsoring corporations, people in our communities, reports/white papers, unpublished data, exigencies related to global and local challenges, and opportunities associated with current events.
Research projects are generally organized around themes that reflect a fusion of thought leadership and research expertise.
