Strategic Management

The Rotman Strategic Management area has the best and most diverse research group in the world.

Rotman's approach to strategic management is discipline-based (from sociology, economics and other fields). Our courses are based on rigorous research, logical consistency and data-driven analysis. Students have the opportunity to learn from all facets of strategy including competitive analysis, networks, causal modelling, the digital economy, corporate restructuring and how to build innovative and entrepreneurial organisations.

Seminars & Workshops


Strategic Management Area workshops are usually held Thursday from 3:30-5:00pm. We periodically present conferences and seminars. When we are able to do so, papers will be posted prior to the workshop start time.


Strategic Management Faculty

Research interests of the strategic management faculty are rich and varied. Some of the most celebrated faculty at Rotman work in this area, including Dean Roger Martin.

Research Group

Organization and Markets Research Group

Sponsored research explores topics such as the relative efficiency of organizations and markets; the incidence and performance effects of non-standard organizational forms such as alliances, networks, and non-standard contracting; the role of geography in determining organizational form; and dynamic interactions between firm and industry levels of analysis (e.g., how firm strategies shape, and are shaped by, market structure).
