About Anoop Madhok
My research interests span both strategy and international management. With respect to strategy, my work is primarily focused on understanding the dynamics underlying strategic alliances between firms. Why are they so prone to instability in spite of their underlying promise? This area of research is particularly relevant to firms today as they increasingly rely on alliances to remain competitive. With respect to international strategy, my current interests lie in better understanding the competitiveness of firms from emerging economies.
