Print Overview

Soroush Aslani is a lecturer and doctoral candidate in the Department of Management and Organizations. He obtained his M.Sc. in Management Information Systems from Queen’s School of Business in Canada, and his MBA from Sharif University of Technology in Iran. Professor Aslani’s research examines cross-cultural challenges and differences in negotiation and conflict management, with a particular focus on honor cultures which include Middle Eastern, Latino, and some Southern European cultures. He also studies the micro-foundations of the problem of collective action and examines how different frames and discourses resonate with different groups in collective causes.

His research on cross-cultural negotiations was selected among the top 5 finalists of the Dexter International Award, across all 25 divisions of the Academy of Management in 2012, and his research on frames and collective action was featured in the “Best Paper Proceedings” by the Organization and Management Theory division at the Academy of Management in 2013. His coauthored paper has appeared in the International Negotiation Journal, and he has presented at the annual meetings of the Academy of Management, International Association for Conflict Management, and Judgment and Decision Making, as well as at the Harvard Conference on Culture, Change, and Conflict in the Middle East, and the University of Chicago Conference on Middle East History and Theory.

Prior to Kellogg, Soroush worked with Roland Berger Strategy Consultants and provided consulting to firms in the oil and gas industry and the transportation industry.
