Welcome to Paul Miesing’s Homepage!

Hi, and please make yourself at home. I’m officially housed at the Business School of the State University of New York at Albany, where I teach and conduct research in strategic management broadly including Executive leadership; Corporate boards and governance; Organizational learning and transformation; Technology transfer; International business and globalization; Cross-culture management and organization; Corporate social responsibility and business ethics. I have published dozens of articles and papers in both academic and practitioner journals, and helped many audiences, including companies, civic groups, industry associations, and government agencies, both locally and internationally. I designed this page to share my experiences with you, so browse around as long as you like and feel free to try anything you want to. I’m still developing my pages and would certainly appreciate your feedback. Office Phone/Voice Mail: (518) 442-4942.
