Back to overview


Stefan Breet is a PhD candidate in the Department of Strategic Management & Entrepreneurship of the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), Erasmus University.

His research focuses on the causes and consequences of corporate entrepreneurship and strategic change. 

One part of his research focus on organisational social networks and how they enable or constrain intrapreneurship. To what extent do the relationships we have at work stimulate us to take initiative and come up with ideas that benefit our organizations? How can managers create an environment in which people feel free to speak up and share information? 

Another part focuses on management teams and the way they make decisions when their firms underperform. Are they able to make the strategic changes necessary to bring back performance to the desired level? Or do they rather hold on to existing routines and activities?

To answer these questions, Stefan combines different scientific perspectives—such as performance feedback theory, the behavioral theory of the firm, and structural holes theory—and research methods—including social network analysis, meta-analysis, and necessary condition analysis. 

Stefan received his MSc degree in 2015 from the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University after completing the Master of Philosophy in Business Research—a two-year research master programme focused on the development of academic competencies and skills. In 2012 he received his BSc degree in Business Administration from the University of Groningen.
