Congratulations to Dr. Trudy Thomas-Smith, new faculty lead of Inclusive Classroom Team

Dr. Giura wins two awards at conference

Dr. Simona Ileana Giura, an Assistant Professor in the Management, Marketing and Information Systems department (School of Economics and Business), presented a paper, “The Impact of Network Centrality on Knowledge Transfers in Alliances,” at the Northeastern Decision Science Institute Annual Conference in Providence, Rhode Island on April 14. This paper won two awards at the conference: Richard Briotta Best Paper Award in Knowledge Management/Strategy and Overall Conference Best Paper.

This paper argues that network centrality of alliance partners, which is a source of power and measures how embedded a firm is in its network,  facilitates cooperation and promotes knowledge transfer in alliance related areas (intended knowledge transfers) while also reducing spillovers of knowledge in alliance unrelated areas (unintended knowledge transfers) by acting as a predictor of opportunistic behavior.
