Michelle Rogan is a Visiting Professor of Entrepreneurship and Family Enterprise at INSEAD. She holds an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Yale University and received her PhD in Strategic and International Management from the University of London (London Business School).
Professor Rogan's research centres on corporate entrepreneurship. In particular, she focuses on acquisitions of social capital, i.e. how firms use acquisitions of target firms to gain valuable inter-organisational relationships to customers, suppliers, and other business partners in the advertising industry. In her research, she has examined how changes in competitive context affect the stability of inter-organisational relationships and how firm v. employee "ownership" of these relationships affects the firm's retention of the relationships. Professor Rogan is currently investigating the effect of competition among clients of advertising firms on the formation of new advertising agencies both within and outside of existing advertising holding companies. In related research in the consulting industry, she explores how ownership rights to inter-organisational relationships affect new business development in established firms. Her research has been published in the Administrative Science Quarterly, Academy of Management Journal, Organization Science, and The Annual Review of Sociology.
Prior to her doctoral studies, Professor Rogan worked for several years as a management consultant at Accenture in San Francisco where she was involved in the implementation of large-scale change initiatives including corporate entrepreneurship efforts in global technology firms. The focus of her client work involved the mobilisation of sponsorship networks in order to support corporate renewal efforts in these firms as well as the design and implementation of firm-wide training programmes.
Professor Rogan teaches the Corporate Entrepreneurship course in the MBA, EMBA and selected Executive Education programmes including Learning to Lead and Achieving Outstanding Performance. She is a co-director of the INSEAD Social Entrepreneurship Programme. Professor Rogan has written numerous teaching case studies, including two award-winning cases: The transformation of BP (with S. Ghoshal and L. Gratton) and Accenture Development Partnerships (with C. Bode).
