Personal profile

Personal information

Jonathan Schad joined the VU in 2021 as an Associate Professor in Strategy and Organization at the department of Management and Organisation. Prior, he was an Assistant Professor ('lecturer' in the UK system) at King's Business School, King's College in London. He further was a visiting postdoctoral scholar at Bayes Business School (formerly Cass) at City, University of London, on a grant awarded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. Jonathan holds a PhD in management studies from the University of Geneva, Switzerland (awarded in November 2017). 


Jonathan's research is at the intersection of strategy and organization theory. He seeks to understand how organisations can manage fundamental competing demands, such as stability and change, short-term and long-term, and profit and purpose. Jonathan thereby draws on and contributes to paradox theory.
