Professor of Entrepreneurship
Hana Milanov joined Instituto de Empresa’s Entrepreneurship Faculty in 2007 upon finishing her doctoral studies in Entrepreneurship and Strategy at Kelley School of Business, Indiana University. Her research bridges these two disciplines through a special interest in social networks. Specifically, she explores how entrepreneurs can efficiently enter industry networks, the uncertainties surrounding the formation of new alliances, as well as the mechanisms through which entrepreneurs can position themselves in the network in order to benefit most from privileged access to various resources. “Access to network resources is often taken for granted. Running a search on Amazon.com for business networking yields more than 35,000 book titles. Yet, with all the increasing prominence that the power of networks and networking receive in research, popular press and every day business life, networking is more than a buzzword” says Hana and adds: “Call it an art, call it science, but we still have many questions to answer in order to advise entrepreneurs how they can get to the point of efficiently accessing and benefiting from their relationships”
Hana’s work was published in Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research, and presented in some of the most prestigious conferences in the fields of Entrepreneurship and Strategy, such as the Babson-College Entrepreneurship Research Conferences, Academy of Management Annual Meetings and Strategic Management Society Conference among others. Hana is also passionate about teaching, and believes that experiences from research and teaching complement each other. Relying on a diverse set of teaching resources, she encourages a discussion-based learning experience with the final goal of developing students’ critical skills and new perspectives on the course material.

Peter Bryant joined Instituto de Empresa's Entrepreneurship Faculty in 2009, having earned his PhD in 2006 from the Macquarie Graduate School of Management in Sydney, Australia. His research focuses on the origin and evolution of entrepreneurial organizations, their capabilities and strategies. His research program synthesizes a number of disciplines and fields, including social cognitive psychology, organizational theory, the theory of the firm and competitive strategy. More specifically, Peter investigates how the behaviors and cognitions of entrepreneurs influence the founding and growth of new ventures. Peter explains: “I am fascinated by the initial conditions of entrepreneurial organizations. I want to understand what happens when diverse individuals join forces to pursue a collective dream.”
Peter's work is published in Journal of Business Venturing, Applied Psychology: An International Review, Management Decision and Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research. He has presented at some of the most prestigious conferences in the fields of entrepreneurship and strategy, including the Babson College Entrepreneurship Research Conference, Academy of Management Annual Meeting and Strategic Management Society Conference, among others. Peter is also passionate about teaching and mentoring potential entrepreneurs and enjoys sharing his students´ journey of exploration.
Prior to commencing his academic career in 2006, Peter held a number of management roles in a range of industries, including Qantas Airways, St George Bank, Deloitte and A&B Venture Capital. He also worked at The University of Sydney where he managed the creation of new technologies ventures. In this role, Peter was responsible for the creation of a number of spin-off companies. Two of these spin-offs were successfully launched on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX), and another attracted early stage venture capital investment. From these professional experiences, Peter brings a deep appreciation of the entrepreneurial process to his teaching and research.
Technical Director to GEM Project. Professor of Entrepreneurship.
After 20 years of teaching Professor Alicia Coduras is an expert in quantitative methods. In recent years she has focused on research related to entrepreneurship, heading the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor project in Spain. This observatory on entrepreneurial activity is led by IE in Spain, pursuing a series of objectives that include: updating knowledge on this field at IE to enable the school’s entrepreneurship department to offer training underpinned by business realities aimed at developing IE students’ business plans; offering recommendations for the design of public policy in the field of entrepreneurship to agents related with the creation of new businesses (Department for Policies for Small and Mid-Sized Businesses, Ministry of Work and Social Affairs, chambers of commerce, entrepreneurs associations , trade unions, universities, companies, communication agencies, etc.); developing academic products based on the GEM report which IE faculty present regularly in major international forums on entrepreneurship and publish in prestigious specialized journals; and finally, designing and implementing other research projects in the field of entrepreneurship and family business, as a complement to the GEM report.
Since the year 2000, when IE began leading the Spanish arm of the GEM report, the study has expanded enormously. Hence, as from 2003, the school was joined by other groups created in Spanish universities. IE currently provides a tutoring service for 12 regional groups from: Andalucia, Canary Islands, Castilla La Mancha, Castilla y León, Cataluña, Comuidad Valenciana, Extremadura, Galicia, Madrid, Murcia, Navarra and the Basque Country.
The work carried out at IE has translated into the presentation of six reports on entrepreneurial activity in Spain and support for the preparation of corresponding regional reports. The Spanish GEM project currently enjoys the greatest scope, together with that of the UK, among the 40 participating countries. Work undertaken over these six years can be consulted on the web at www.ie.edu/gem.
Professor Coduras holds a doctorate in political sciences from the University of Pompeu Fabra and a degree in economic and business sciences from the University of Barcelona. She was professor of statistics and econometrics at the Unversity of Barcelona from 1985 to 1991 and held a similar position at the University of Pompeu Fabra from 1991 to 1999. Since joining IE in 1999 she has held different positions: researcher in healthcare (1999-2001), professor of quantitative methods (2002-2003), and research professor in the department of entrepreneurship (2004 – present date).

Now Professor Cruz is focussing her efforts on injecting the entrepreneurial spirit into new generations. “The founder of a family business is a born entrepreneur, but it does not necessarily follow that subsequent generations will be”- she argues. This underlying philosophy and the conclusion of her research is the base of IE’s elective course on family venturing. Cristina´s work was published in prestigious journals such as The Academy of Management Journal and presented in conferences such as the Babson-College Entrepreneurship Research Conferences and the Academy of Management Annual Meetings.
Since 2004, she is a member of the research team of the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, the largest single study of entrepreneurial activity in the world. Recently, she has also being appointed Director of the IE University Young Entrepreneurship Chair, funded by Bancaja.

Joseph Pistrui has more than 25 years of management experience, first working for Bristol-Myers Squibb in the United States (eleven years) and later working with global organizations such as AstraZeneca, BBVA, Bosch, BT, Citi Group, DT, Financial Times, HSBC, Microsoft, Rio Tinto, Royal Dutch Shell, Siemens, Thomson Reuters, Unilever, Vestas, and others (fourteen years to date). Joseph´s contribution to these organizations has been based on his distinctive ability to navigate between the practice of management and a wide-ranging set of management theories (Joseph has a Ph.D in Business Strategy and Entrepreneurship). Much of Joseph´s work has focused on what he calls the “entrepreneurial problem” of growing the top line through innovation based new business development. From his extensive work with global organizations Joseph has developed a novel point of view regarding the challenges of leading strategic transformation in large organizations. His point of view is informed by concepts as wide-ranging as leadership, entrepreneurship, strategic innovation and design thinking and promotes a bias towards actions.
Joseph is currently the Dean for Executive Education and a member of the faculty of Entrepreneurial Management at IE Business School based in Madrid. Additionally he holds a Visiting Fellowship at the London School of Economics and Political Sciences, where he lectures and researches issues related to new enterprise formation as part of the LSE’s Department of Management.
Joseph holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship from Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona, a Master of Arts in Liberal Studies from DePaul University, and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Ferris State University. He was born in Detroit, Michigan USA and has lived and worked in Europe since 1993 and currently resides in Madrid, Spain.

Juan Díaz Andreu
Professor of Entrepreneurship
With 8 years of teaching experience, Profesor Juan Díaz-Andreu García is an expert in Business Development in Technology companies. In the last years, he has focused on value creation in the IT arena. “After the dot-com crash in the early 2000s, investors are more demanding when it comes to the return on their investments in technology”, says Juan, who assures that Technology will continue to provide a competitive advantage in certain sectors. The biggest challenge for companies today is to align their strategy and the way they use technology, while taking into account the human factor, which is many times forgotten in the decision-making process”, Juan adds.

Julio de Castro
Professor of Entrepreneurship
Julio Orlando de Castro’s infectious enthusiasm and wry sense of humour makes it easy to become interested in what he has to say about strategy and entrepreneurship. And as someone who comes from the Dominican Republic and who has consulted for companies both in the US and elsewhere, he has plenty of stories to tell when it comes one of his main areas of study - the way cultural variances have an impact on entrepreneurship in different parts of the world.
Prof de Castro is fascinated by how the American entrepreneurship spirit is migrating across the Atlantic to Europe, which has traditionally lagged behind the US on this front. Another of his areas of focus is the nature of entrepreneurship among women and Hispanics. “I look at questions of context and conditions and what implications they have for public policy,” he says. “What’s interesting is that the way people interpret cues in the environment may play a role in their decision to become an entrepreneur. So what you have to do to foster entrepreneurship in the US may be very different from what you do in the UK or in Spain.”
The process of privatisation is another area of interest for Prof de Castro, particularly in former communist states and less developed countries. He is also keenly following the nature of technology transfer and its effects on new venture creation - especially with respect to piracy.
Prof de Castro - whose work has appeared in publications such as his work the Academy of Management, Journal of International Business Research , the Journal of Business Venturing, and the Journal of Management Studies - believes that companies need to recognise conditions where it can play a positive role in creating a market and building a brand. “What’s interesting is you’re starting to see some evidence of companies taking a more strategic approach to this,” he says.

Professor of Entrepreneurship
Manuel Bermejo is an expert in Entrepreneurship. In his own words, “My vocation is to be an entrepreneur, which has given me a complete insight into the different categories of entrepreneurial activity: franchises, managing new companies and SMEs, and family businesses”. Manuel has taught at Instituto de Empresa since 1992, combining his teaching and management duties at IE with a wide range of activities in the corporate world. “ Entrepreneurial work has a broad scope. It’s not only about newly created companies, but also large organizations that are increasingly concerned about maintaining their entrepreneurial spirit, which permits them to develop their business and thus maintain a competitive position. The entrepreneur needs help in finding the best funding options. We have to help family businesses (which comprise two thirds of businesses in the world) to be more competitive and ensure their continuity. The franchising formula makes for more enterprising societies, hence my longstanding interest in them”.
Professor Bermejo has authored numerous case studies, research articles and books, including Crea tu Propia Empresa (McGraw Hill, 2003) and La Creación de la Empresa Propia (McGraw Hill, 1994). He regularly collaborates with Spanish and Latin American media agents. Furthermore he speaks at numerous conferences and forums, such as the European Franchising Congress, Proyecto Espacio (Mexico), at Universidad de San Andrés (Argentina), at Universidad Católica de Argentina, the First National Franchising Congress in Colombia, the annual meeting of the Colombian Association for SMEs (ACOPI), Capital & Corporate, etc.

Professor of Entrepreneurship
Born of a Tunisian mother and a Dominican father and married to a French citizen, Rachida likes to describe herself as a product of globalization. “I am very versatile and in that respect the cultural diversity and openness to change of IE Business School provides me with an ideal environment where I can develop my potential to its fullest extent” says Rachida.
It is this atypical profile that underlies Rachida’s interest in fields like women entrepreneurs or social enterprises, considered until recently marginal issues in the field of entrepreneurship but which have now become extremely popular. “Human beings are very complex and I find it fascinating to analyze how one person can have different expectations”, she adds. Specifically, she explores how entrepreneurs struggle to deal with important dilemmas such as how to reconcile professional and family ambitions, how to create a business that successfully achieves the double bottom-line of economic performance and social value, or the implications of these aspirations in terms of firm performance and growth. These are some of the issues that Rachida addresses in her research, published in journals like Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research, the International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Small Business, the Journal of Research in Marketing and Entrepreneurship, as well as in several book chapters. She has received several awards, including the “Best Women’s Entrepreneurship Paper Award”, from the Academy of Management Conference, and IE’s Best Teaching Case Award.
Since 2002, Rachida is a member of the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor, the largest single study of entrepreneurial activity in the world. From 2003 until 2007 she also worked as the associate director for the Associate Dean’s Office at IE Business School, and is currently focusing on research and teaching.
Rachida’s cross-cultural background also gives her the kind of profile that the media refers to as being multifaceted. Such profiles are characteristic of leading international business schools, who now demand that professors are not only good teachers but also good researchers, capable of generating relevant knowledge for business organizations or for society, and which require experience in business management.

Taiyuan (Terry) Wang is a Professor of Entrepreneurship at Instituto de Empresa. Before joining IE, Terry studied at the Richard Ivey School of Business in Canada, where he earned his Ph.D. in Strategy and Entrepreneurship. Before pursuing his Ph.D. study, Terry worked for multinational corporations and governmental organizations in China, where he has accumulated extensive industrial experience. He describes his career in the past decade as “every transition was quite professionally and culturally fundamental.”
Related to his career path, Terry’s research interests focus on a fundamental question: How can firms be entrepreneurial in developing new markets, products, and services? To answer this question, Terry has linked the field of entrepreneurship with other fields such as Strategic Management and Human Resource Management. In a recent study, he found that to be entrepreneurial, firms need to place the pursuit of new opportunities and rapid growth as their top strategic priority. Then they need to develop specific practices and processes that can facilitate innovative, proactive, risk-taking, aggressive, and autonomous behaviours in the workplace. He also found that a firm’s compensation policy plays an important role in influencing employees’ participation in the firm’s entrepreneurial strategies.
Terry’s research appears in the best paper proceedings of the Academy of Management. He has presented his studies in prestigious conferences such as the Academy of Management, the Academy of International Business (AIB), and the Administrative Sciences Association of Canada, where he also won the awards of Best Ph.D. Student Paper and Best Reviewer. Terry is also a passionate instructor in the classroom. In his own words, “teaching cannot be effective without passion, vision, and good communication.” He is dedicated to these teaching ideals in his class, by using various materials and employing multiple methods.
