Biography

Valerio Cerretano holds an MA (Laurea) from the University of Pisa and a PhD from the University of Cambridge. Before joining the School, he taught at the universities of Cambridge, Bozen, Glasgow (Economic and Social History), Manchester and Birmingham. He has also been a research fellow at Paris Jourdan, now part of the Paris School of Economics, and at the Hagley Museum and Library, Wilmington, Delaware. Valerio’s research interests lie in the areas of management and international business but also in that of industrial and economic development taken in a historical perspective. His life-long ambition is to contribute to a Schumpeterian and Baumolian approach whereby microeconomic and management analysis is also used to underpin our understanding of broader phenomena concerning industrial and economic development. Valerio is contributing to the analysis of the internationalisation of large European corporations, as well as certain forms of cross-border corporate co-operation specific to Europe (i.e. international cartels), and their impact on the international spread of technology in the past century.  In addition, he is carrying out research on the role of European central banks in the development of long-term finance and, ultimately, on their involvement with industry since 1914.
