Centre de Recherche en Management et Histoire Financière

Encourager la recherche en management et histoire financière à ESCP Europe, dans le but de faire de notre institution l’un des principaux centres d’études du développement du management, des institutions qui régissent le marché, et de l’histoire des techniques d’analyse en management.

Objectifs


Le centre adopte une approche de l’histoire du management qui est la fois comparative et interdiciplinaire. Cela signifie qu’il travaille non seulement sur des expériences de management nationales mais aussi sur l'influence des cultures nationales les unes les autres. De plus, le centre encourage les études sur les institutions qui régissent le monde des affaires en tant que phénomènes sociaux. Ces études s’appliqueront à la fois à des questions historiques et économiques, d’une part, et méthodologiques d’autre part.

Activités


  • Create a forum for the discussion of business and financial history. Establish seminars in which members of the ESCP Europe community present their own work or in which invited speakers present.
  • Integrate a module for historical methodology into Ph.D. research seminar;
  • Develop new courses in business and financial history;
  • Support the research of members of the ESCP Europe academic community whose work can profit from a historical perspective;
  • Look for ways of integrating the history perspective into general courses;
  • Improve our research capacity;
  • Find new sources of funding for research through private companies, foundations, or governmental institutions;
  • Organize workshops on comparative business and financial history with other academic institutions.
