Caroline Flammer is an assistant professor of strategy and innovation at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business. Her research interests are in competitive strategy at the intersection of corporate governance, corporate social responsibility, impact investing, and innovation. Her most recent work examines how corporate governance can help foster a longer-term orientation and the investment in long-term strategies such as innovation and stakeholder relations. In particular, by providing executives with long-term incentives, or tying their compensation to CSR performance, shareholders can align managers’ interests with long-term value creation. She has published in leading academic journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, Management Science, and the Strategic Management Journal. Caroline was awarded the 2015 Alliance for Research on Corporate Sustainability (ARCS) Emerging Scholar Award.
