Full Professor of Strategy & Organization
prof. dr. J. Surroca

I am Professor of Strategy & Organization at the University of Groningen. Previously I was Associate Professor of Management at the Department of Business Administration at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, where I also served as Deputy Director of Research, Director of the Master in Management, and Deputy Director of the Master in Business and Quantitative Methods (first stage of the PhD program). During 2011-12 I was visiting scholar at the Management and Organization Department of the Carroll School of Management, Boston College.


I received a Ph.D. in Business Economics (program in Entrepreneurship and Management), a Diploma of Advanced Studies in Management (Management, Organization, and Business Economics), and B.A. in Economics, all from Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB).


My research interests focus on the intersection of strategic management, corporate social responsibility, and corporate governance, though I have also explored topics such as multinational firms, managerial cognition, strategic groups, accounting manipulation, efficiency measurement using frontier analysis, and R&D Strategies. My articles have appeared in leading management journals, including Academy of Management Journal and Strategic Management Journal, among others. My research has been awarded with several prizes, including the Best Paper Award of the Social Issues in Management division at the Academy of Management 2008 Meeting (Anaheim, USA) or, more recently, the Research Award for Young Researchers of the Social Council of the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain.


I am member of the editorial review board of the Strategic Management Journal. I also serve as reviewer for several national and international research agencies and as referee for more than 20 journals, including: Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, Organization Science, Journal of Management, and Journal of Management Studies.


I primarily teach strategy and organization theory and design to graduate students. Other courses that I have taught are: Ethics and Corporate Social Responsibility (graduate level), The Firm and the Natural Environment (graduate level), Corporate Governance and Social Responsibility (executive education), Strategic Management (executive education), Essentials of Business (undergraduate level), and Organizational Economics (undergraduate level).
