About me

Dr Dorottya Sallai completed her doctoral research in Management at King's College London. Her PhD focused on the Europeanisation of corporate lobbying in the enlarged European Union. Her work is published in peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of International Management, Business and Society, the Journal of International Business Policy and the Journal of Common Market Studies. Her book chapters on multinationals' non-market strategies were published by Oxford University Press and Palgrave Macmillan.

Dr Sallai teaches Organisational Change Management, Bargaining and Negotiations, Organisational Behaviour and Leadership and Nonmarket Strategies. She is also the academic mentor of BSc Management students. Her case study on ‘Professional large group mentoring as an alternative to the ‘traditional’ personal tutoring system’ was published in ‘The Higher Education Personal Tutor’s and Advisor’s Companion’. 

In her research, Dr Sallai investigates state-firm relations, corporate political activities from the perspective of comparative capitalism and the impact of the political context on firms and national business systems. Currently she is interested in the impact of exclusionary populists and authoritarian regimes on businesses and national business systems.
