Gurneeta Vasudeva is an Associate Professor at the Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota. Her research advances the idea that firms’ knowledge flows and value creation depends on dual considerations pertaining to their organizational and institutional ecosystem: managing alliances and networks for knowledge flows, and devising strategies to cope with the institutional environment within which these knowledge flows occur. She has examined relational designs for building knowledge capabilities in the fuel cell, mobile handset and pharmaceutical industries. Apart from technological knowledge-building, she has investigated how firms develop environmental, social and corporate governance capabilities for sustainable growth, and learn from the actions of large prominent actors--such as activist institutional investors in their ecosystem--who have made responsible investments a cornerstone of their international investment strategy. Her doctoral thesis won the best dissertation awards from the Academy of Management and the Academy of International Business. Her research has been published in the Academy of Management Journal, Management Science, Strategic Management Journal, Organization Science and Research Policy, and she serves on the editorial board of the Academy of Management Journal, Organization Science, Strategic Management Journal and Global Strategy Journal. She is a recipient of the Carlson School Dean's annual research award, and has received multiple research grants.
