Professor Mehdi Boussebaa

  • Professor in International Business (Management)

Biography

Mehdi Boussebaa is Professor of International Business at the Adam Smith Business School, University of Glasgow, where he also leads the International Business and Enterprise Research Cluster.

His research spans the fields of international business and organisation studies and is also informed by postcolonial/decolonial thought and theories of globalisation. It is mainly concerned with the politics of corporate globalisation and management knowledge, with a specialist focus on professional service firms (especially management consultancies). In recent years, Mehdi has also been active in the 'decolonising the business school' movement through writing, workshops and symposia.

Mehdi's work has been published in journals such as Human Relations, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of World Business and Organization Studies. One of his papers was a finalist for the US Academy of Management's Carolyn Dexter Award and another two were shortlisted for the Col. Lyndall F Urwick Memorial Prize awarded by the Worshipful Company of Management Consultants.

Mehdi is Co-Editor-in-Chief of Critical Perspectives on International Business and serves on the editorial boards of Human Relations, Journal of Management Studies, Journal of Professions and Organization, Journal of World Business and Organization Studies. He has held visiting positions in Canada (Alberta), China (Tongji and UIBE), France (Aix-Marseille) and Sweden (Lund).  

Mehdi earned an ESRC-funded PhD from the University of Warwick in 2008 after which he completed a Post-Doctoral Research Fellowship at the University of Oxford before joining the University of Bath School of Management in 2009. He received the Dean's Award for an Outstanding Contribution to Research at Bath in 2015 (and the Dean's Award for Research Excellence in 2012). He joined Glasgow in 2016.

Prior to becoming an academic, Mehdi spent 2½ years working for a (now defunct) US-based telecoms market research and consulting firm in London following undergraduate studies at Bayes (formerly Cass) Business School and (as an Erasmus student) Complutense de Madrid, Spain. In his late teens and early twenties, he worked in various small jobs in Paris and London to finance his studies and travels around the world. He speaks four major world languages.
