Research summary: Multi-party alliances rely on partners' willingness to commit and pool their efforts in joint endeavors. However, partners face the dilemma of how much to commit to the alliance.

Using a large sample of executives in S&P1500 firms over 1996-2010, we document significant salary and total compensation gaps between female and male executives and explore two possible explanations for the gaps. We find support for greater female risk aversion as one contributing factor. Female executives hold significantly lower equity incentives ...

Author(s): Nasini, Stefano; Martínez de Albéniz, Víctor; Dehdarirad, Tahereh

Document type: Article in Journal (refereed)

Exponential random models have been widely adopted as a general probabilistic framework for complex networks and recently extended to embrace broader statistical settings such as dynamic networks, valued networks or two-mode networks. Our aim is to provide a further step into the generalization of this class of models by considering sample spaces which ...

On the Cost of Capital in Inventory Models with Deterministic Demand

Date: 01/2017
Author(s): Serrano, Alejandro; Oliva, Rogelio; Kraiselburd, Santiago

Document type: Article in Journal (refereed)

In the operations management literature, the financial risk in an inventory model is usually assumed to be captured by the (constant) weighted average cost of capital (WACC) of the firm. This assumption is, at best, an approximation, since this cost depends on the risk of the cash flows, which, in turn, depends on the inventory policy. We investigate ...

Shifting to dramatically more sustainable systems is an unconventional or wicked problem, encompassing multiple actors, disciplines, and values. Yet to date, sustainability initiatives have been tackled primarily by means of conventional managerial approaches. We contend that these approaches are ill-suited for achieving sustainability transformations. ...

Date: 23/12/2016
Author(s): Klueter, Thomas Maximilian; Monteiro, F.
Editor(s): EIC - Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center
Document type: Article in Journal (refereed)

As much as prior research has shed light on the boundary-spanning processes of global organizations and their (positive) impact on an MNC's performance, whether, when and how past performance ultimately shapes an MNC's boundary-spanning activities remains an open question in management research. To tackle these questions, we examine the behavior of ...

Understanding Community Dynamics in the Study of Grand Challenges: How Nonprofits, Institutional Actors, and the Community Fabric Interact to Influence Income Inequality

Date: 21/12/2016
Author(s): Berrone, Pascual; Gelabert, Liliana; Rousseau, Horacio Enrique; Massa-Saluzzo, Federica
Editor(s): Cátedra Schneider Electric de Sostenibilidad y Estrategia de Negocio
Document type: Article in Journal (refereed)

This paper provides a conceptual model that explains how competitive and institutional dynamics at the community level influence the ability of welfare-oriented nonprofits to eradicate income inequality. To test our framework, we build a large and unique seven-year panel dataset consisting of data from 245 U.S. communities. We find that increasing ...
