Rosana Silveira Reis
Associate Professor at ISG – International Business School in Paris, France

A brief about me: born in Brazil, I have been living in Europe since July 2004. I have spent six years in Italy, where I defended my PhD at University of Bologna, and the last eight years in France where I’m currently an Associate Professor at ISG - Paris. I have 31 years of experience in Human Resources, and I held several managerial positions for 15 years in Brazil. Due to my strategic position in the market I was invited to give seminars in MBA courses, and over five years I accumulated - in parallel - experience as university lecturer, when I opted for an academic career in 1999. In 2000 I received my Scientific Master’s in Business Administration from the Federal University of Santa Catarina (Brazil) and in 2010, my PhD in Management from the University of Bologna (Italy).
Since 2000 I have been teaching Human Resource Management, International HRM and Organization Behaviour in Graduation, Masters and MBA programs. Following the International Partnership Program at ISG, I am also a visiting professor at Fundação Dom Cabral – FDC in Brazil (one of the most renowned business schools in Executive Education in the world) and Invited professor in MBA programs at IMPS Business School in Brno (Czech Republic), at University of Bologna (Italy) and at Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Rome (IT).
In my research, I am working in the cross-border of Organization Behaviour, Innovation and Entrepreneurship. My focus is on Ecosystems of Innovation, Culture, Creativity in Global Teams and Leadership. My research has appeared in books and international journals published in English, Portuguese, and Chinese languages. Nowadays I’m developing a research on rebuilding the identity of entrepreneurs and leaders in healthcare start-ups, as well their management implications.
