ISM DBA alumnus Laurent Dorey has published his dissertation titled "Sustainability of Born Global Firms: Leveraging Diversity for Success." Building on his extensive international experience, the work investigates the ways in which born-global firms can achieve longevity and success by optimizing their diverse intangible assets.

The study not only delves into the role of managerial, organizational, and strategic skills in enhancing the sustainability of established born-global firms, but also enriches its findings with valuable insights from 16 successful leaders across three continents. Grounded in a comprehensive review of literature on born-global firms, the research targets a broad audience, from scholars and business managers to students, offering insights that are both accessible and relevant.

Based on a doctoral dissertation defended in October 2021, the essay has been tailored to cater to an audience of scholars, business managers, and students, making it easily accessible and relevant to a wide range of readers.

Prior to pursuing his DBA, Laurent Dorey led an international sales and marketing career that took him to various parts of the world. He spent around 10 years stationed in Northern Europe, working closely with individuals, businesses, and cultures from diverse nationalities.

Recently, Laurent Dorey settled back in France and established his own consulting agency. With a focus on helping SME/SMIs launch their export ventures, he leverages his broad international, hands-on experience. Alongside his consulting work, Laurent dedicates part of his time to teaching management to undergraduates.
