Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise

Ivana Naumovska is an Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise at INSEAD. She teaches courses on entrepreneurial acquisitions. Before joining INSEAD, she held a Postdoctoral position at the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University.

In particular, she examines the mechanisms by which social-psychological and institutional factors combine to influence stock market evaluations of firms and their practices. The overarching goal of her research is to better understand the societal dynamics that govern financial market responses to firm behaviours, while advancing organisational and strategy theories that can improve the decision making of entrepreneurs, managers, and investors.

Professor Naumovska holds a PhD in Strategic Management (cum laude) and an MA in Finance (cum laude) from the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University, and a BA in Financial Economics (cum laude) from the Utrecht School of Economics, Utrecht University.
