Global Strategy and Organizational Behaviour

The GSOB cluster focuses on the global dimension of business management, with particular emphasis on ‘HRM’, ‘strategy’, and ‘organisational behaviour’, broadly defined. In an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world, research on ‘global’ issues that affect the business world is of great importance. At the same time, however, we are cognisant that there is a paradox at work, whereby in an increasingly ‘globalised’ world, the local context has become more, not less, significant. As firms and managers expand their reach across national borders, it is imperative to consider the various political, economic, social, cultural, and legal factors that make each market distinct in nature. As it is clear, the main concern of researches in this cluster is to link the academic knowledge to current and future practices in different sectors such as business, public and non-profit to respond to the emerging needs of the IR 4.0 era.

In light of this, some of the key research interests of this cluster include:
  • Human Resource Management
  • Entrepreneurship
  • International Business
  • Organizational Behaviour
  • Strategic Management
The core members of this cluster are as follows:
