Biography

Biography

Prior to joining NHH Norwegian School of Economics in 1994, I was employed by NTNU - The Norwegian University of Science & Technology as an Associate Professor of Sociology. At NHH in 1997 I was promoted to Professor of International Management.  I co-authored three international text books on International Management (2003, 2014 & 2019). The most recent of these is:

Gooderham, Paul N., Birgitte Grøgaard, and Kirsten Foss. Global Strategy and Management. Edward Elgar Publishing, 2019.

My research appeared in Journal of World Business, Journal of Management, Journal of Management Studies, Journal of International Business Studies, Strategic Management Journal, Human Relations and Administrative Science Quarterly.

In 2022 I received the five-yearly NHH “Outstanding Researcher” award.

Having been connected to Middlesex University since 2011, on leaving NHH in 2022 I moved to a .6 FTE appointment at Middlesex University. 

Teaching

I lead the hybrid DBA programme with its focus on “leadership of change projects” in the candidate’s organization.
