Strategy and Entrepreneurship

Louise Mors is an Assistant Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at the London Business School. Dr Mors has a PhD in Management (strategy) from INSEAD in Fontainebleau, France and a Master of Business and Economics from the Norwegian School of Management. Prior to joining the London Business School, she was at the Sloan School of Management (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in Cambridge, MA.

With a focus on large, global firms, Louise's research examines how senior managers utilize their informal networks to access valuable new business opportunities and mobilize the scarce resources needed to act on such opportunities. Louise Mors is particularly interested in the implications of operating in complex global environments. Her most recent research examines the networks of senior partners in a global consultancy. In particular, how these partners can use their networks most effectively to maximize the firm's financial and innovation performance. With co-authors at INSEAD and the London Business School, she has also studied networks and knowledge transfer processes in a large high-technology company. Other recent work with a co-author at MIT has explored how applicants to an international bank compete for jobs.

At the London Business School, Louise Mors teaches the core MBA course Understanding General Management. This course gives a rounded introduction to the MBA program and the issues MBA students will face as they enter general management. She also offers a second-year elective on Global Strategy and Management that addresses the complexities involved in operating across borders, as well as the challenges met by global firms as the world is getting smaller. To the PhD students; Louise offers a course on Strategy Process. This course gives an introduction to the classic readings and recent theory on how strategy is formulated and implemented in organizations.    

Before pursuing her academic career, Louise Mors worked as an independent management consultant. Among others, she advised the senior management of a large British media and communications firm on their e-business strategy. She also assisted the senior management of one of the largest industrial conglomerates in Europe to devise their growth strategy and corporate strategic identity.

Born and raised in Denmark, Louise has an international background; having lived, studied, and worked in Sydney, Oslo, Paris, London, San Francisco, Boston, and New York. When time allows, she enjoys pursuing outdoor adventures such as running, horse riding, rock climbing, skiing, and fly-fishing - preferably in remote and wild parts of the world.
