Ilze Kivleniece is an Assistant Professor of Strategy at INSEAD. She holds a PhD in Strategic Management from HEC Paris (France), a BSc and an MSc in International Business and Economics from the Stockholm School of Economics. Prior to joining INSEAD, she was a faculty member at the Imperial College Business School (UK) where she taught in a number of programmes, including specialised Masters and MBA.
Ilze’s research focuses on an emerging, prominent area of studies that connects strategic management with broader issues related to the interaction between firms and public, political or social environment. In her research, she draws upon organisational boundaries, nonmarket strategy, and value-based perspectives, to study the emergence and performance of novel, innovative organisational forms as important mechanisms of value creation and capture. Ilze’s principal research areas are 1) the emergence and design of novel hybrid organisational forms, with particular emphasis on public-private (or cross-sector) collaboration, and 2) the impact of political and social interests, and nonmarket pressures on firm strategy, boundary choices, and performance.
Her work has been published or is forthcoming in a number of prominent academic journals such as the Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Journal and Journal of Management Studies. Among a number of distinctions, she is the recipient of the Strategy Research Foundation Scholar 2011 grant from the Strategic Management Society. She received the Best Dissertation 2013 award (across all disciplines) from the HEC Foundation, France, for her PhD work.
Ilze serves as a member of the editorial review board of the Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, and has served in reviewer roles at the Academy of Management Journal, Strategic Management Journal, and Journal of Organization Design.
Before joining academia, Ilze held several senior account management and corporate development positions (M&A, restructuring, corporate governance and reporting) in advertising, telecommunications, and IT industries.
