Research groups play a major role in the organisation and development of research at Montpellier Business School. Research adopts a modern strategy based on interdisciplinary research groups fostering strong cooperation between internal and external faculty members-researchers. Research groups are dynamic and evolving with professors-researchers who can contribute simultaneously to several groups.

Montpellier Business School is strong with its 9 research groups:

  • Entrepreneurship entry mode and survival
  • Business survival and growth
  • Inter-organisational and interpersonal relations in the SMEs context
  • Health, entrepreneurship and psychological markers
  • Entrepreneurial economics
  • Accounting for sustainability and innovation
  • Design, creative thinking and innovation
  • Management & Organisation of Sustainable Transformations
  •  Health & Innovation for Society

Presentation

Entrepreneurship research has investigated and generally well-documented the determinants of outcomes of new business formation (survival and growth). But so far, little distinction is made between different entry modes. An emerging line of thinking shows that starting a new business from scratch and taking over an existing business are two distinct entrepreneurship entry modes.
The research group is a joint effort of Montpellier Business School (Frank Lasch, Frank Robert, Roy Thurik) and the University of Trier in Germany (Jörn Block, Guoqian Xi).
 
Examples of current work
  • Work experience from paid employment and the path to entrepreneurship: business takeover versus new venture start-up
  • Mode of entry into hybrid entrepreneurship: new venture start-up versus business takeover
  • How does business survival differ between business takeovers and new venture start-ups?

The research group takes into account the diversity of industries and entrepreneurs in investigating new business survival and growth.
 

Examples of current work

  • ICT venture survival and growth
  • Types of entrepreneurs and propensity of survival

Presentation

Entrepreneurs/self-entrepreneurs, senior and top managers are the drivers of entrepreneurial orientation and business growth. They have long been considered to possess better mental health than their employees. However, this distinction remains little explored. Several studies have been conducted on the mental health of employees, but little is known about the health of entrepreneurs/self-entrepreneurs and executives. Few empirical studies interested in their health and job performance. Examining their psychological and personality traits – such as affect, self-efficacy, personality traits (the 5 big traits), mindfulness, impulsivity and the Dark Triad (narcissism, Machiavellianism, and psychopathy) – could thus prove useful for better understanding their behavior. Thus, studying “bright and dark sides” of these traits could help to better understanding how to counteract their effects on stress/technostress and burnout at work. The list of psychological and personality traits is not exhaustive. Any research on this issue is welcome.
The research carried out by this group addresses these problems and is based on teacher-researchers from Montpellier Business School and other partner universities.
The research group on “health, Entrepreneurship and Psychological Markers” deals with these issues and represents a pooling of skills between researchers from Montpellier Business School and other partner schools.

Examples of current work

  • Stress/Technostress/burnout
  • Positive/negative affect
  • Mindfulness
  • Personality traits

Presentation

Much research has been conducted in the last decades to understand the emergence of startups and the key factors of success for entrepreneurs. As argued by Pr. Thomas Hellmann (Saïd Business School, Oxford, UK), due to its positive impact on job creations and economics growth entrepreneurship is now considered and recognized as one subdomain of the economic science research, alongside macroeconomics, development economics and others.

Presentation

This multidisciplinary research group, formed in January 2012, aims to investigate responsibility of organizations by integrating performance elements. It understands how organizations participate in the social and environmental transition of our societies. Responsibility and performance are defined here around various dimensions such as economic, social and environmental. This group looks in particular at values viewpoint of economic and social actors while taking into account the diversity of organizational forms. The word “values” has many interpretations because it not only refers to financial, economic and social values (value created for different kind of stakeholders) but also to individual and collective values influencing peoples’ behavior. Different levels of analysis (individual, joint and organizational) are used to describe these concepts, their importance and their managerial implications.
 

Activities/missions

This research group aims at addressing (without restriction) the following themes/questions: 

  • How can organizations manage to be mission-driven and to satisfy in the same time their economic objectives? What are the resulting tensions/paradoxes and how can we manage them?
  • How do stakeholders contribute to the realization of economic, social and environmental outcomes in organizations? What are the power relations? How to manage them?
  • What forms of alternatives organizations or managerial innovations are desirable and feasible to sustain the social and environmental transition of our societies?

Presentation

The research group “Health & Innovation for Society” aims to better understand the challenges of health in the current context (societal, environmental, and technological transformation) within the biopharmaceutical industries, hospitals, and among patients. More specifically, the research focuses on:
  • The development of new technologies in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries,
  • The challenges relating to the shortening of the hospital stay, as well as the implementation of home hospitalization from the emergency services,
  • The contribution of patient partners in the proactive management of their disease. Define more targeted and more adapted care pathways for each service or if possible, by pathology.
  • Health and access to care for disadvantaged people (people excluded from employment, migrants, etc.)
  • The impact of teleconsultation on society. The development of e-health (e-consultation, patient profile with all their history available on a platform for any practitioner).
In order to provide answers to these issues, the members of this research group aim to forge links with hospitals and biopharmaceutical companies in order to contribute to the improvement of management solutions dedicated to health professionals. They also seek to study innovative practices in this sector with an inclusive approach.
 

Projects in progress

  • Patient Partner
    Established in Canada, the “PP” system in France is developing to fundamentally transform patient care and the way services operate. The patient experience then becomes a key step in the health journey. The “Health for Society” research team aims to study the impact of this device on improving the health system in and with hospitals in France.
  • Home hospitalization and cost reduction 
    How is the Home Hospitalization doable from the emergency services in France? What is the profile of patients who can safely benefit from it? Who would be the appropriate partners who would take over in Home Hospitalization? How does Home Hospitalization bring the well-being of the patient, while guaranteeing the safety of care and the same quality of hospital care?
  • Patient Data Privacy, and role of Artificial intelligence in Health
    The dilemma between agreeing to share your health data and the abuse of data use. What wise choice should be made for patients, for the government and for companies?
  • Digital transformation in pharmaceutical and biotech companies
    Why Organizations Struggle with Digital Transformation? To what extent is there resistance to the digital transformation by employees? How to drive Transformation and Innovation? How to build the Agile Business through Digital Transformation: How to Lead Digital Transformation in Workplace? 
  • Strategic Management of technologies and Innovation in the biopharmaceutical companies 
    The choice of the strategy of biopharmaceutical companies for the development of new technologies is often complex and depends on several external (competitors), and internal (resources, knowledge) factors. What factors allow precise identification of a missing need will reduce the risk? What are the specific contexts to consider in biopharmaceutical companies? What are the specific governance mechanisms? How do these companies integrate CSR / inclusion approaches?
