About me

My name is Agnieszka Nowinska. I am Polish, lived in Belgium for many years, now located in Denmark. I am an Assistant Professor at the Aalborg University Business School. I held a PhD in Management and Economics from the Copenhagen Business School (2018) and before that I studied at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels & Solvay Business School (Master in Management 2010).

I worked for 8 years as a business development manager in a private company in Brussels and served as Trade Officer at the Embassy of Poland in Belgium. The research part of my business development job as well as the focus on networks, mobility, and relationships is at the core of my research and teaching now. For more information about me see my Academic CV.

Scientific Focus Areas
I am an Assistant Professor with a strong interest in network and mobility studies. I studied employees’ migrations worldwide following an organizational failure of a large Danish MNE but also the evolution of employees’ careers in terms of their international assignments. A part of these, I studied global buyer-supplier relations with focus on local vs. distant relationships.
I study employees’ mobility and co-mobility worldwide following a failure of a large MNE. I am also interested in supplementing the knowledge on MNE global staffing and study novel staffing strategies including local staffing.
Network formation and persistence are my core interests. I study the drivers of employees’ co-mobility at the individual level and the networks between employees and employers. I also study buyer-supplier networks along with their determinants including proximity (local vs. global networks).
My study of global networks led me to elaborate on the internationalization of service firms, such as brokers. I study the process of “following the client” in such respect and the agency of such firms in their internationalization process. In another study, I elaborate on how service firms with different value creation logics internationalize.
