CURRENT RESEARCH

Professor Hyder leads two research projects. One project deals with sustainable business relations in culturally distant countries. This study explores the impact of cultural differences on forming and applying business relation-ships within international business establishments. It aims to develop network theory by introducing the concept of cultural differences and also examine the applicability of a cultural network model in describing how networks are built, developed and sustained in culturally distant countries. The other project looks on the post merger situation in Nordea. The major issues discussed in the project include organizational culture, adaptation and competence development.
