Our Community

Centre for Advanced Research in Management and Applied Ethics is a small organisation, but with a contagious enthusiasm and a high expertise. We believe that, in developing meaningful programs and projects, the difference is made by how the human capital is valued and not by the number of human resources. This is why we always emphasize the expertise of our members.

Our community is formed of senior specialists and a few early stage professionals. Some of them hold PhDs or are pursuing PhDs in their fields of expertise. They come from various fields — Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Journalism, Economics or Computer Science — and have a strong interest in Applied Ethics and Strategic Management, not only from an academic perspective, but also as a professional interest.

From 2017, due to our international commitments, our organisation will be focused more on attracting young talents from across Europe. If you are interested in learning more about the available opportunities, join our newsletter today!
