When it comes to research on executive career paths and executive career success, a common complaint is that the material is very US focused. Professor Monika Hamori hopes to change this with her study of Spanish and European executives. She has published articles on online recruitment, on how executive search firms work, and on the predictors of executive career success. She has also contributed to publications such as The Harvard Business Review and the Financial Times’ Mastering Management series. Hamori is Director of Faculty Development at IE, responsible for mentoring new incoming faculty and organizing social events for faculty.  She is on the Thinkers 50 “Guru Radar,” a ranking of influential management thinkers.
