Biography

Craig Crossland is the Rev. Basil Moreau, C.S.C. Associate Professor of Business, and Chair of the Management & Organization Department. He received his Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University. Prior to joining Notre Dame, he worked at the University of Texas at Austin. Craig's research is in the area of strategic management, with a focus on senior executives and their effects on organizational outcomes. His work has been published in the Academy of Management Journal, Advances in Strategic Management, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Strategic Management Journal, Strategic Organization, and two edited volumes. He serves as a member of several editorial review boards, and is active in the Academy of Management and Strategic Management Society.
