    Mohammad Mahdi Tavalaei

    PhD Candidate, Strategic Management Concentration 2011-

After finishing my graduate education at my home country (Iran) and having about seven years of professional experience in industry, I decided to pursue my studies at PhD level. IE Business School is a top tier European school with decent faculty and rigorous research environment. Becoming as a part of the collective wisdom that tries to explore through social world’s complexities is my ultimate and ongoing goal in academic life. My research rests mainly on competitive strategy and dynamics, particularly in multisided markets.
