Malgorzata Ciesielska holds a PhD in Organisation and Management Studies from Copenhagen Business School and a first-class MSc in Business Management and Marketing degree from the Warsaw University, Poland.
Before joining Teesside Business School in April 2012, she was a Research Associate and part-time Lecturer at Newcastle University. Dr Ciesielska has previously worked at several universities in Europe, including Warsaw University, Poland, Växjö University, Sweden and Copenhagen Business School, Denmark. She used to teach various undergraduate, graduate and MBA courses, in particular organisational behaviour and critical management theories, cross-cultural and international management, and a qualitative research methodology.
Currently, she is responsible for several change management modules. Prior to her academic career, Dr Ciesielska was a consultant on data protection in pharmaceutical industry and diversity management. In 2003-2005 she held a position of EU Coordinator in pharmaceuticals in the Polish Ministry of Health.
Her responsibilities included acting as Poland’s advisor on pharmaceutical legal issues in the European Commission and Council of the EU. Between 2006 and 2007 she also conducted studies on good gender policies and diversity management in Polish companies as a part of the pro-gender-equality United Nations Development Programme.
Innovation and management in high tech organisations, are Dr Ciesielska’s main research focus. Her doctoral dissertation looked at the case of NOKIA corporation and their open source strategy. Dr Ciesielska spend over two years following NOKIA’s actions within two Open Source Software projects: Linux-based GNOME and Maemo (currently Intel’s MeeGo), which enabled her to gain in-depth knowledge about the nature of the software business and open source innovation challenges. To analyse an emerging hybrid business model in between two institutional arrangements (market and open source), three themes were taken into account: knowledge management, trust and internal identity struggle between being an open and close-mode company.
More recently, within Social Inclusion through the Digital Economy (SiDE) project, she was investigating smart home business cases in the connected home industry. Dr Ciesielska has also undertaken research in entrepreneurial processes in SMEs.
