Research Themes

MSM conducts applied research and policy advocacy in order to promote sustainable development and business in three research focus areas:

  • Entrepreneurship, society and innovation
  • Globalization, finance and trade
  • Risk, business and sustainable development

These focus areas are supported by the Research Methods, Skills and Supervisory Support Cluster (co-ordinator: Ms. Jakomijn van Wijk, PhD) and guides the topics studied by DBA students in our DBA-school.

To increase the uptake of our research by decision-makers various dissemination and policy advocacy initiatives are undertaken including annual conferences and workshop events, publication of journal articles, books, working papers, occasional papers and business briefs. Various research fellows write their own blogs.
