Obtaining a PhD degree is a personal achievement. One hundred PhD defenses is a milestone for an institution. Since its foundation in 1999 Erasmus Research Institute of Management (ERIM) provided a doctoral programme meant as a vehicle for the early academic careers of new, excellent scholars in the field of management. Over one hundred PhD dissertations have appeared in the ERIM PhD Series in these years. ERIM alumni are active in a variety of professional roles in both academia and business across the world. The book is devoted to personal research and career stories of each single one of the one hundred alumni.
