About us


Our vision is to contribute to a sustainable society where contextual understanding of management, leadership and organizations drives responsible change in business and society.


The department of management and organization equips people and organizations with the knowledge and skills needed to deal with current issues and the uncertainty of a changing world. We do this by developing and disseminating research-based knowledge at the intersection of people, organizations and society.

Our research and teaching is multidisciplinary and reframes contemporary issues with the aim to contribute to better lives, organizations and societies. We draw on and contribute to the knowledge domains of Organization theory, Organizational behavior, Governance, Leadership, HRM, CSR and Organizational change.

We achieve our vision by engaging in reflective and vibrant dialogues with researchers, students and practitioners, in a collaborative creation of knowledge about and for the contemporary organizational reality. Located in Stockholm, Sweden, a region and country top-ranked on sustainability and innovation, we draw on unique access to organizations in our research and education.


The research at the department is broad in various respects. Theoretical and methodological pluralism is important. Our research aims to address a diverse set of questions relevant to different levels of management and society at large. The research covers organizations in various phases of development, using a variety of research methods across different industries, both public and private.

The organization of research at the department is fundamentally based on research projects and research programs that span across three key dimensions: PeopleOrganization, and Society.
