Research Themes

MSM conducts applied research and policy advocacy in order to promote sustainable development and business with a focus on:

  • Private Sector development

organised in five themes related to emerging markets::

  • Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Digitisation
  • Leadership, Change and Organisational Development
  • Inclusive and Sustainable Development
  • Globalisation, Value Chains and Industrial Policy
  • Educational Development

These focus areas are supported by the Research Department and Expert Centre on Emerging Economies.

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.
