Hej! My name is Mara and I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Management, Information and Production Engineering, and the Center for Young and Family Enterprise (CYFE) at the University of Bergamo in Italy.
I am glad to visit CeFEO and Jönköping International Business School. I will also be back next spring for a month!
My research interests revolve around understanding how and why the embeddedness of firms, and family firms, in a social and institutional context shapes their decision-making process and behavior. During these two visits in Sweden I will work on a research project which aims to understand why and how family SMEs achieve high growth.
The research visit is financed by the C.M. Lerici Foundation with the purpose of supporting the research collaboration between Italy and Sweden. I am very grateful for this valuable opportunity!
