Kellogg Strategy Department

The Strategy Department explores how firms create and capture value, and how they do so in light of their market environments, organizational capabilities, and regulatory constraints. The department's research and teaching are grounded in microeconomics and reflect its commitment to both rigor and relevance.

The department's research spans a wide range of topics, including health, innovation, organizational design, and industrial organization. Faculty use both economic theory and econometrics to explore these issues. The ultimate and unifying goal of the faculty's research is to improve our understanding of markets and organizations. The faculty share the belief that this is best achieved by combining rigorous economics with a deep understanding of institutional context and detail.

The Strategy faculty is at the cutting edge of research and teaching on the economics of organizations, markets, and public policy.

Strategy faculty sit on the editorial boards of leading journals and are frequently sought out for their expertise in business and government affairs. Members of the faculty founded the Journal of Economics and Management Strategy and authored Economics of Strategy, one of the primary textbooks in the field.
