  • This research stream involves the study of organizational and participatory processes related to power, production of knowledge / skills, skills, collective movements, subjectivities and diversities, with emphasis on the world of work in public, private, social movements, and non-profit organizations.

  • This line of research addresses issues related to performance and competitiveness in private, public, and non-profit organizations; through the evaluation of business processes and market movements, aiming to optimize management practices, resource use, and results. It is structured based on the following thematic axes:

    Operations Management
    This thematic axis focuses on organizational and inter-organizational operations. It involves the study of decision making, analytical approaches (Business Analytics), risk, resilience, information technology, automation, inter-organizational networks, benchmarking, efficiency and productivity of private and public companies, as well and firms in regulated sectors, among other aspects in the field of operations management.

    This thematic axis focuses on (1) marketing strategies, marketing mix applications, marketing metrics, and (2) consumer behavior in its different phases and mental and emotional processes that surround the buying process. To this end, the works resulting from the research developed in this axis should prioritize the quantitative perspective in the choice of methods, data collection, and data analysis. Furthermore, the studies may approach the organizational marketing strategies and buying behavior applied to different market sectors (online and offline retailing, services, B2B relations between industries).

    Economics of organizations and economics of education
    This thematic axis focuses on (1) the study of the politics of business and the economics of private companies, public organizations, and third sector entities (as corporate governance) and (2) research on the supply of education (as the determinants of school performance) and the demand for education (as school dropouts) in public and private education networks in all education levels.

  • This research stream seeks to understand how management and organization practices are developed, as well as the cultural and symbolic dimension of public and private organizations. The basic conceptual areas refer mainly to the theory of social practice, public management, sociability, ethics and social responsibility, with emphasis on the use of interpretive approaches to analysis.
