Bio

András Tilcsik is an Associate Professor of Strategic Management and holds the Canada Research Chair in Strategy, Organizations, and Society at the Rotman School of Management.

His research focuses on organizations, occupations, and work, and he is particularly interested in the causes and consequences of inequality in labor markets and the workplace. This line of his research has appeared in the American Journal of Sociology, the American Sociological Review, and the Administrative Science Quarterly and has been recognized with several awards from the American Sociological Association, including the W. Richard Scott Award for Distinguished Scholarship and the Granovetter Award for Best Article in Economic Sociology.

At Rotman, András teaches a popular MBA elective on organizational failure. His book Meltdown (New York: Penguin Press, 2018), coauthored with Chris Clearfield, is based on this course and explores the enduring insights of organizational sociologist Charles Perrow. Meltdown received the National Business Book Award, the Academy of Management's George R. Terry Book Award, and the Bracken Bower Prize, and was named one of the books of the year by the Financial Times.
