Thinking ahead

Our strength lies in translating groundbreaking thinking into the practices that underpin our programs, to help organizations perform at the highest level and stay ahead of the game.

Hult's research challenges

Our research falls into two themes, which not only reflect our existing research progress but also harness the School’s differentiating advantage as a uniquely international institution, with students and faculty hailing from and teaching in different parts of the globe as a single community.

Creating Disruption highlights the strategies that anticipate, shape, and react to changes in international markets. What local or global events, technology, or scenarios enable or trigger a new strategy? How are strategies constructed, communicated, and implemented? How well do specific strategies perform, especially in multinational environments? How can strategies that are successful in one market be leveraged in another market that might be half way around the globe? Learn more

Transforming Behavior relates to the continuous improvement of organizational and personal leadership practices. This involves rigorous data-driven assessment of the interventions and programs that generate the greatest long-term improvement in the behavior of individuals, teams, and organizations in business settings globally.

Thought-leadership and expertise

The focus of our research is on the existing issues facing individual leaders and organizations and, more crucially, future global trends. 

Our research covers a wide range of topics that are critical to personal and organizational success in today’s competitive, fast-moving climate. These include long-term research interests in sustainability and changing demographics.
Recent ground-breaking research has investigated the impact of lack of sleep on the physical health, business, and personal lives of managers, and the growing importance of mindfulness amongst leaders.
