Serghei Musaji joined the Faculty of Management in 2020 as an Assistant Professor of International Business. His PhD comes from IE Business School, IE University in Madrid, Spain, where he defended with Honors in 2018. His dissertation is focused on Strategy and Entrepreneurship in the context of International Business. While at IE Business school, Serghei was focused on researching business success of international new ventures and of immigrant entrepreneurs. Specifically, he studied such aspects as economic geography of location choices, the success in collaborative international environments; cross-country differences and their effects on the organizational outcomes; organizational learning in the context of partner selection process; the effects of the immigration profile on the post-immigration business success, to name just a view.

Serghei’s work in that area has been regularly presented at the top international conferences hosted by the Academy of Management, Babson, American Sociological Association; Strategic Management Society; and the Academy of International Business. He was also distinguished with a number of international awards as, for example, Ewing Marion Emerging Scholar Best Paper Award (2016) or ITC-Emerald Best Dissertation Award (Finalist) (2019). His work has also been published in such outlets as Academy of Management Journal; Academy of Management Proceedings; the Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research, but also as chapters in books.

Dr. Musaji’s research interests are rather multidimensional and broadly focus on various strategic issues in organizational life (ex: learning; geographical expansion; collaboration; resource consumption efficiency). He also has rather ample managerial experience in various domains ranging from corporate research and marketing to finance/accounting and intellectual property management.

Prior to joining the faculty of Management, Serghei had a research stay at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City (2017), and then worked as Post-Doctoral Research fellow the Department of Technology Management and Entrepreneurship at UNB (2018-2020). While at TME-UNB, Dr.Musaji has been studying the determinants of environmental performance in firms with a focus on the energy efficiency aspect.
