About me

Eva le Grand is a PhD Candidate in Organisational Behaviour in the Department of Management. She is being supervised by Professor Harry Barkema and Professor Jacqueline Coyle-Shapiro.

She is currently exploring why and how employees in social organisations in extreme poverty contexts are motivated to contribute to social goals and engage in organisational citizenship behaviour. Furthermore, she is interested in how entrepreneurs (successfully) learn from failures taking into account both micro and macro-level variables.

Eva holds a master’s degree, with distinction, in Management, Organisations and Governance from the London School of Economics and completed her undergraduate studies in Economics and Psychology, both with distinction, at Utrecht University in the Netherlands.

She has experience in the for-profit sector as well as the government sector. Over the years she has volunteered at several NGOs in the field of education in amongst others the Netherlands, Brazil and Spain.
