24 September 2012

In August 2012, Tomasz Obloj, Professor at HEC's Strategy and Business Policy department, along with Metin Sengul, Professor at Boston College, obtained the Wiley Blackwell Outstanding Dissertation Award of the Academy of Management for his thesis entitled: "Incentive Life-Cycles: The Role of Learning, Ability, and Cognitive Biases in the Division of Value within Firms.

"It is a great honor for me to receive the Wiley dissertation award. It took five long years to write it, so I'm very happy for the recognition." says Professor Obloj.

His dissertation draws on the economic theory of incentives, value-based models of strategy and the behavioral theory of the firm, to explore how the dynamics of organizational incentive regimes affect the division of value within firms: between a firm and its employees.
