For almost 15 years, Montpellier Business School has been furthering a dynamic research policy which has resulted in a constant effort to recruit the best researchers at national and international level. More than 55 teacher-researchers have been recruited over the past 15 years.
The number of publications in peer-reviewed journals referenced in the National Center for Scientific Research list (~800 titles) has logically increased both in quantity and quality in recent years following our faculty member’s voluntary rise in competence, maturation, internationalisation and reinforcement by numerous recent recruitments. Our teacher-researchers have published in peer-reviewed journals such as (but not limited to):
Journal of Banking and Finance; Journal of Economic Dynamics & Control; Human Resource Management; Nature; Science; Management Science; European Journal of Operational Research; Review of Finance; Journal of Comparative Economics; Economic Theory; Human Relations; Journal of Management Studies, International Journal of Production Economics, Journal of Money, Credit and Banking.
Our research activities cover all traditional areas of management research. Research activities are based on the work of permanent teacher-researchers, who are themselves affiliated to the MRM laboratory (Montpellier Recherche en Management “Montpellier Research in Management”). Montpellier Business School’s teacher-researchers are also part of the LabEx Entreprendre. This LabEx is the only laboratory which is specialised on this topic in France, within the framework of the call for projects of the “Investments for the Future”.
Our researchers play an important role in editorial activities and in the organisation of annual conferences such as the Interdisciplinary European Conference on Entrepreneurship Research (IECER) and the International Finance Conference (IFC). In November 2017, Montpellier Business School has also organised its first International Conference on Energy, Finance and the Macroeconomics “Conférence Internationale sur l’Energie, la Finance et la Macroéconomie” (ICEFM).
Montpellier Business School also organises research seminars every 15 days around three axes: methodology, presentation of working papers and presentations of external teacher-researchers. The first months programme is presented below :
