Member of CNRS-GREGHEC Research Group

Giada Di Stefano earned her Ph.D. at Bocconi University.

In her research, she investigates when and why firms transfer the knowledge that helps them achieve competitive advantage, especially when such knowledge cannot be effectively protected by legal property rights. In this context, she is particularly interested in the role played by social and institutional forces, such as social norms.

Giada has taught courses on Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship in the biotech industry at Bocconi. Previous to joining Bocconi, she worked as a product manager for L'Oréal Paris.
Her work has been recognized by several awards, including the 2011 Premio Isimbardi (the Province of Milan's top honor for young researchers), the 2011 Best Dissertation Award from the Technology and Innovation Management division of the Academy of Management, and a selection among the finalists in the 2011 Best Dissertation Award from the Business Policy and Strategy division of the Academy of Management.
