Prof. Henk Volberda appointed EURAM fellow

The European Academy of Management (EURAM) has appointed Professor Henk Volberda from Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University (RSM) as one of its fellows. This was announced by EURAM’s President Sibel Yamak at the community’s annual conference in Glasgow on 23 June 2017.

“I’m very honoured to be named an EURAM fellow. It feels very prestigious,” says Prof. Volberda. RSM’s professor of strategic management and business policy received this international recognition for his scholarly work and his contributions in EURAM’s board as vice-president research. Volberda also chaired EURAM’s annual conference in 2012, won the European Management Review Best Paper Award in 2014, and founded the strategic management Special Interest Groups at EURAM.

As a fellow, Volberda aims to contribute to the further professionalisation of EURAM’s management scholar community in terms of quality of the annual conference and the level of the doctoral consortium. “EURAM should become the platform for scholars in management for knowledge exchange and academic debate, as well as a vehicle for a better European job market for management scholars,” he said. “Also, EURAM should put management research higher on the agenda of the European Union.”

EURAM has awarded the distinguished status of ‘EURAM Fellow’ to outstanding scholars since 2012. The ambassadorial and leadership role of the fellows supports the work of the EURAM Board and its Executive Committee. There are only 12 EURAM fellows in total, including Prof. Anna Grandori (Bocconi University, Italy), Prof. Anne Huff (TUM Business School, Germany), and Prof. Joan E. Ricart (IESE Business School, Spain).


The European Academy of Management is a community of management scholars, founded in 2001 with a head office in Brussels, Belgium. The EURAM society provides its members with opportunities to enrich debates over a variety of research management themes and traditions. With over 1,000 members from 49 countries in Europe and beyond, EURAM aims to advance the academic discipline of management in Europe through events, programmes, activities and its journal European Management Review.
