Aharon Cohen Mohliver

Assistant Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, London Busi¬ness School

Professor Mohliver is a strategy scholar specialising in quantitative research of business ethics and corporate social responsibility (CSR). He helps organizations understand why misconduct emerges, and thus help them preempt behaviours that harm the organization or its broader stakeholder environment. In a related stream Aharon studies the implications of social polarization for firms wanting to engage in CSR. Aharon’s research asks why some firms, but not others, engage in behaviour that is viewed unfavourably. These reasons include the information network in which the firm is embedded, competitive pressures, regulation, the firm’s own history and internal processes of hiring and promotion. Aharon studies these social antecedents of misconduct in a variety of organisational settings ranging from executive stock option backdating and financial restatements, to student plagiarism and violence in professional sports. His research examines questions about the diffusion of wrongful practices, the effects of recessions and booms on morality and the effects of institutional changes on firm corrective action. In a related research stream, Aharon examines the implications of social polarization on the effectiveness of CSR. Specifically, this research explores the conditions under which one firm’s actions to support diversity, environmental sustainability and labour safety can in fact push its competitors to pollute, discriminate and abuse labour. Aharon’s research is published in leading academic journals such as Organization Science and Administrative Science Quarterly, he serves on the editorial board of the Strategic Management Journal and his dissertation was cited in major legislation affecting ownership structure in Business Groups in Israel. Before joining London Business School, Aharon was the domestic policy advisor to MP Benjamin Netanyahu (2005-2007), and advised the Israeli Securities Authority and the Committee on Competitiveness in the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office (2010-2012). Aharon holds a PhD in Management from Columbia Business School, and Masters degrees from Columbia University (MA) and the Hebrew University (MA, Finance and Strategy). Aharon is currently Assistant Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship at London Business School and has taught courses covering Strategic Management, Strategic Analysis, Sociological Foundations of Strategy and Behavioral Strategy. He has taught EMBAs, MBAs, Masters in Management, Specialised Executive Programs and PhD students. Aharon is now teaching the Executive MBAs at London Business School.
