IRG - Institut de Recherche en Gestion

The Management Research Institute of the University of Paris-Est is a research unit that brings together all the teacher-researchers who work on management science disciplines.

Since the merger of the IRG of Créteil and the PRISM team of Marne la Vallée in 2010, the scientific identity of the IRG has been built on the theme of Management and Society by orienting its work in a reflexive perspective. The reflexive perspective of the work carried out allows us to contribute to the evolution of the discipline by analysing and proposing alternative management models.

The work in progress is grouped around the following three themes:

  • Performance and responsibility
  • Service companies and services to society
  • Innovations, transformations and resistance
