Biography

INSEAD Business School
Assistant Professor of Organisational Behaviour

Jennifer Petriglieri is an Assistant Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD. She directs the Executive Education Management Acceleration Programme, and teaches the High Impact Leadership Programme, The Leadership Transition programme, and the Psychological Issues in Management elective course in the MBA programme.

Her research investigates how individuals craft and sustain their personal and professional identities in contexts characterised by high uncertainty, such as mobile careers or organisations and professions in crisis. Jennifer’s research on how sudden crises in organisations and professions affect the identities and actions of their senior and most-established members won the INFORMS/Organization Science dissertation proposal award. Her work on the personal foundations of leadership development received the GMAC Award for the most significant contribution to graduate management education, and her theoretical work on identity threat was selected as a finalist for the best paper of 2011 in the Academy of Management Review. Her research has appeared in the Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Review, Academy of Management Learning & Education, and the Journal of Organizational Change Management. It has also been featured in the online editions of Business Week and the Harvard Business Review.

Jennifer has long been involved in experiential leadership development initiatives for multinationals from a variety of industries. Her work in this domain pays particular attention to the interplay between individual's life stories and group memberships and their decision-making and professional style in leadership roles. At INSEAD, she has been awarded Dean’s commendation for teaching excellence and the MBA best teacher award. She was awarded a place on Poet and Quants’ global ranking of Top 40 Business School Professors under 40, and was shortlisted for the Thinkers 50 Radar award.

A British citizen, Jennifer earned a PhD in Organisational Behaviour from INSEAD. She also holds an MBA from IMD, Switzerland, and a BSc in genetics from Nottingham University, UK. Prior to joining INSEAD, she was a Post-Doctoral Fellow of Organisational Behaviour at the Harvard Business School. Having lived and worked on three continents, she is now settled in France with her husband and two children.
