Dennis Wajda

PhD Candidate


I became interested in the field of Strategic Management during my time in the military as a strategic and operational planner as well as through my MBA studies, which further motivated me to pursue a PhD. in this field.
My interests lie in firms’ strategic response to changes in the political and regulatory environment. Specifically, I am interested in how firms’ competitive position and managerial discretion are directly impacted by changes in laws over time.
