Faculty and Research
The Alba faculty consists of a core of Resident Faculty, a number of Visiting Professors from leading international business schools (e.g., Harvard Business School, INSEAD, London Business School, London School of Economics, New York University, University of Michigan, Wharton Business School), and a number of Research Fellows and Teaching Fellows.
Alba Resident Professors are leading academics who produce high calibre academic research that has appeared in such journals as Academy of Management Annals, Academy of Management Review, Journal of Accounting Research, Journal of Finance, Journal of Marketing, Management Science, and Review of Financial Studies.
Faculty members are engaged in ongoing research at the cutting edge from which new ideas, knowledge and applications are generated and incorporated into teaching. The pursuit of world-class research constitutes a fundamental element of ALBA's institutional blueprint and one of the most important dimensions of resident faculty's academic activities. The current resident faculty team has produced several journal articles, books, book chapters, and academic conference presentations.
