This research program is unique and it has developed a distinct brand over the years. It is often referred to as the Helsinki school of strategy research, which is characterized by bold thinking, novel insights, and extensive collaboration. This is reflected in theoretically ambitious and practically relevant research, student focused teaching, and active cooperation with business practitioners and the society at large.
Key members of the research program have a solid track record in publishing in the very best journals in the field. These include, in alphabetical order, Academy of Management Annals; Academy of Management Journal; Academy of Management Learning and Education; Academy of Management Review; British Journal of Management; Gender, Work and Organization; Human Relations; Journal of Business Venturing; Journal of International Business Studies; Journal of Management Inquiry; Journal of Management Studies; Organization; Organization Science; Organization Studies; Research Policy; Strategic Management Journal; and Strategic Organization.
The Strategy as Discourse initiative is linked with the Strategy as Practice community (http://www.s-as-p.org/) and the SAPIN network. The Finnish scholars are very active in the European Group for Organization Studies (EGOS), the Academy of Management interest group of Strategizing activities as well as in Strategic Management Society.
