New Faculty in the Management Department
Two new faculty members will join the Management Department this coming Fall.
Nydia MacGregor joins the department as an assistant professor of management after graduating with a Ph.D. from the Haas School of Business at University of California, Berkeley in May 2009. Dr. MacGregor’s research examines how the structure of organizational populations and the character of available resources influence the founding and survival of organizations. For example, one portion of her dissertation evaluates various local attributes that differentially influence the performance and life cycle of chain and independent establishments. She studies these issues in several industries, including retailing, bookstores, and U.S. banking.
Dr. MacGregor has received several awards and fellowships in support of her research. Among these are the Institute of Management, Innovation and Organization Doctoral Fellowship; the Center for Responsible Business Ph.D. Fellowship; and the Crawford Doctoral Scholars Award. She is member of the American Sociological Association and the Academy of Management, where she has presented her work.
Dr. MacGregor also holds a MBA in General Management from UC Davis and a BA in European History from UC Santa Cruz. Prior to her doctoral studies, she held strategic management positions at Jamba Juice Company and Noah’s NY Bagels. In addition, as a consultant and facilitator for the Institute for Business Innovation at UC Berkeley, she lead student teams to develop and implement strategic innovation solutions for firms such as Clorox, Panasonic, LAM Research and Visa.
Niki A. den Nieuwenboer
Niki A. den Nieuwenboer joins the department from the doctoral program at RSM Erasmus University in the Netherlands. Her research interests lie in the area of behavioral business ethics, looking at the causes and processes that underlie good and bad behavior in firms, as well as at how perceptions of morally acceptable and unacceptable behavior are shaped by their social environment. Dr. den Nieuwenboer’s research is based on literature from social psychology, criminology, and sociology.
Her current work explores how managers coerce employees to fake sales results, the role that social status drives have in the propensity to engage in deviance, and how institutional forces within organizations, and people’s incapacity to uphold norms and rules in a consistent manner, drive bad behavior in professional service firms. Future work will also include the role of the bureaucratic environment and IT systems in the coming into being of deviant subcultures.
Dr. den Nieuwenboer has published in the Journal of Business Ethics and was the runner-up in the 2007 Annual Duke University, Fuqua School of Business, Center of Leadership and Ethics (COLE) Dissertation Proposal Competition.
