Arkadiy Sakhartov’s research focusses on corporate diversification. His interest in the topic has been inspired by the paradoxical prevalence of diversified firms and the ambiguity in extant research about whether corporate diversification adds value. To address that paradoxical prevalence and the prominence of diversified firms, Arkadiy Sakhartov focuses on a specific type of economies of scope realized by such firms, resource redeployability. He defines redeployability as a real option for a firm to withdraw resources from one business and reallocate them to another business. Arkadiy Sakhartov’s research has been published in the Strategic Management Journal and Organization Science and is regularly presented in academic conferences. Arkadiy Sakhartov received his Ph.D. in Strategic Management at Purdue University and, after graduation, worked at the Wharton School of University of Pennsylvania. He has recently moved to Gies College of Business of University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Arkadiy Sakhartov currently works on several manuscripts about resource redeployability and teaches an undergraduate course on strategic management and a Ph.D. course on corporate strategy.
