About Maja Korica

Maja Korica is Professor in Strategic Management at IÉSEG School of Management in Paris, France. Previously, she was a faculty member of Warwick Business School, within the group, specialising in corporate governance and accountability, and public sector management. She also held the role of Research Fellow at the Unit for the study of Innovation, Knowledge and Organisational Networks (IKON), also at Warwick Business School, working on the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) SDO-funded project entitled The Organisational Practices of Knowledge Mobilisation at Top Manager Level in the NHS, with Davide Nicolini (WBS). The study looked closely at the use of knowledge and evidence by NHS trust chief executives in their decision-making, and more generally into the nature of their everyday work. As part of the study, she spent considerable time in organizations, closely observing the daily practices and interactions of individual chief executives.

She completed her DPhil (PhD) in Management Studies at the Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. Her doctoral thesis explored corporate governance and accountability in the public sector via direct observation of board and other committee meetings, as a counter-point to dominant scholarly accounts focused on governance structures and detached, normative pronouncements. She is broadly interested in everyday realities of organisational life and work.
