Biography

With a BA in history and six years of work experience as a software product manager and management consultant, Dr. Andrew von Nordenflycht brings an interesting perspective to his teaching and research in the field of corporate governance. He joined the Beedie School of Business at SFU in 2004 after earning his PhD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). "I'm combining my interest in history and institutional change with an issue that's very relevant to corporations today - corporate governance," says Andrew. "Power structures are often hard to change and can be a source of relative efficiency or inefficiency for both corporations and governments."
