Sponsored research explores topics such as the relative efficiency of organizations and markets; the incidence and performance effects of non-standard organizational forms such as alliances, networks, and non-standard contracting; the role of geography in determining organizational form; and dynamic interactions between firm and industry levels of analysis (e.g., how firm strategies shape, and are shaped by, market structure).

Rotman Institute for International Business

RIIB was founded in the early 1990s with a mission to focus faculty research and teaching expertise on the changing global environment and Canadian competitiveness and disseminate its work to Canadians and abroad. An important objective of the Institute was to establish close relationships with policy advisers in government and business to further a two-way flow of ideas and research.
