Research grants

The Foundation supports research focused on economics and business management carried out by IESE’s Business School research chairs. The commitment of IESE’s faculty to research and the generation of new ideas is rooted in the mission of the school.

The IESE’s research chairs carry out multidisciplinary and rigorous research that is relevant to the current and future needs of businesses and society. The faculty develops research in a wide range of academic areas, but several have gained international visibility through the years. Some of these are strategy, leadership, entrepreneurial initiative, ethics, globalization, emerging markets, public sector, digital economy, corporate governance and sustainability.

IESE’s Business School (University of Navarra) faculty comprises 105 full-time professors from 31 countries, all of whom hold PhD degrees. Working with them are 54 research assistants, eight visiting professors and 80 researchers.
