Dr. Mike Valente


Mike Valente is an assistant professor at the Schulich School of Business in Toronto, Canada. His general research interests revolve around the interaction between business and society. He is particularly interested in the typology of organizational responses to complex social, ecological, and economic issues, including those responses that represent a paradigmatic difference from mainstream business models.

Dr. Valente is interested in understanding the key drivers that explain variations in adoption levels while exploring the process by which organizations transition between sustainability orientations. With this in mind, Dr. Valente is more generally interested in radical organizational change and how change to sustainability involves the need for simultaneous change of complex systems.
