Responsible Management

At Audencia Business School, we believe responsible management serves the interests of both an organisation and society at large – going beyond technical approaches that focus on optimisation based purely on finances.

The research we produce in the Management Department is designed to promote a “human” form of management that integrates economic, social, technological, legal and ethical issues in decision-making. We believe properly defining and implementing business strategies, managing human resources and change and developing new technology and information systems requires management that accounts for the individual and social dynamics of an organisation.

Research Thursdays

On Thursday afternoons, each department regularly invites renowned researchers working in France or abroad to present recent projects at Audencia. The departments also organise internal research seminars, which allow faculty members and PhD students from Rn’B Lab to present and improve their work through discussion with their colleagues.

To strengthen the skills of laboratory members, methodology workshops are held regularly:

  • Using research software (e.g., NVivo)
  • Development and implementation of quantitative and qualitative methodologies (e.g., PLS)
  • Promoting research on social networks

Rn’B Lab members actively participate in workshops to strengthen their skills in scientific writing and assessment of academic articles in the English language. Researchers also receive mentoring in a Higher Degree Research (HDR) approach to management science.
