Research at Gustavson

Part of a young, energetic business school that values innovation, integrative approaches and sustainability, our research program fosters a friendly, non-hierarchical atmosphere that is supportive of our close-knit faculty.

Our research asks fundamental questions, ones that have the potential to shift how we think of business and management. With a commitment to multidisciplinary research, we recognize that management problems rarely occur in isolation and bring this collaborative perspective to complex research topics.

Research that makes a difference

Good research leaves its mark in academic circles, in research-informed teaching or in the day-to-day of practitioners working in organizations.

Great research leaves its mark in all 3 areas.

At Gustavson, we aim for great research. Research that makes a difference. Our researchers strive to make meaningful academic contributions through their original, peer-reviewed findings. They look for opportunities to bring their research expertise into the classes they teach, so our students benefit from first-hand, cutting-edge knowledge. And they seek ways to ground research questions in real-world business needs, through partnerships with organizations and people.
