Maja Korica

Croatian born Korica is an Associate Professor of Management and Organisation at Warwick Business School, University of Warwick. Her research focuses on understanding complex and rarely seen organizational settings, particularly at the top of organizational hierarchies, and where public interest is involved. A qualitative researcher, she has closely observed boards and management teams in the UK public sector, to explore how governance and accountability are accomplished in practice. She also shadowed trust chief executives in the English National Health Service (NHS) over a two-year period to better understand the nature of their decision-making, and work more broadly. She has since shifted attention to coordination in notably challenging settings. This includes current research into operational, on-the-ground responses to refugee emergencies.

Her work has appeared in leading practitioner publications, including MIT Sloan Management Review (“Staying in the know: overhauling your personal knowledge structure”, 2015). An innovative and passionate teacher, she is the recipient of a number of awards. In 2017, she was recognized as one of the ‘Top 40 Undergraduate Professors’ by Poets & Quants. She regularly comments on issues relating to management and beyond on Twitter @DrKorica. For more information, see her Warwick Business School profile.
