Bruno Cirillo

I am an Associate Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at SKEMA Business School in Sophia Antipolis, France.

My research is centered on understanding how firm-specific human capital shapes the performance and career paths of knowledge workers, as it also impacts a firm's innovation performance and strategic positioning. Moreover, I delve into the implications of both intra-firm and inter-firm knowledge worker mobility within and between organizations, with particular focus on the dynamics associated with technology spin-offs and spinouts. These investigations aim to provide insights into areas such as organizational learning, technological repositioning, individual performance, and the professional trajectories of knowledge workers. My work has been published in journals such as Organization Science, Research Policy, and Industrial and Corporate Change. I was honored with the 2013 Best PhD Dissertation Award from the Technology and Innovation Management division of the Academy of Management.

Currently, I serve as a member of the Editorial Review Board for several prominent journals, including the Organization Science, Strategic Management Journal, Strategic Entrepreneurship Journal, and Journal of Management Studies, and I am a Representative-at-large for the Strategic Human Capital interest group (IG) of the Strategic Management Society. Additionally, I have taken on the role of a guest editor for Advances in Strategic Management.

At SKEMA, I have been teaching Strategy courses across various undergraduate and graduate programs in France, the United States, and China.
