Organizations and Markets Faculty

We believe in a multidisciplinary approach to business education at Booth.

In this academic area, interdisciplinary courses such as Strategy and Structure: Markets and Organizations provide students with an overarching framework for thinking about the relationship between strategy, the organization, and the firm’s environment. Other courses developed by our faculty such as Strategic Leadership in Management Networks introduce students to the competitive advantages that a social network can provide, and to ways to enhance and maintain individual and group advantage.
