MBA 2015 Capstone: Case Challenge

I had the distinct pleasure of designing this year's case challenge for the LBS MBA Class of 2015 Capstone, in collaboration with The Crown Estate (class theme: Building a sustainable future). Over the course of 3 days, students worked on addressing the following case challenge: "In a world of rapidly shifting demands and expectations of occupiers, what should The Crown Estate do to remain innovative and competitive whilst meeting the demands of its mandate?" Here's a picture of the winning study group, A2, together with Prof. Andrew Scott (LBS), Mr James Cooksey (Head of Central London, Urban, The Crown Estate) and Ms. Judith Everett (Director of Corporate Affairs, The Crown Estate). Well done to all the teams, and congrats to all the graduates!


My Research

I am a strategy scholar whose research focuses on Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). More specifically, I seek to understand whether, how, and the extent to which the modern business organization contributes towards building a sustainable future. My academic work evolves around two main themes: a) understanding how investment analysts, and the public equity markets, perceive, evaluate and react to corporate engagement with, and integration of, environmental and social issues into strategy and b) understanding the multiple factors (e.g. institutional, regulatory, behavioural) that may affect, drive or hinder, the corporate decision to adopt environmentally and socially responsible strategies.
