Faith Hatani

My research focuses on the role of international business in economic development. I am particularly interested in multinational firms’ strategies and their interactions with government policies.

Before joining CBS in 2018, I held positions as Lecturer in International Business (Manchester Business School), Lecturer in Strategy (Surrey Business School), and the Advanced Institute of Management (AIM) Post-doctoral Research Fellow (Cardiff Business School) sponsored by the UK’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).   

I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge, with full financial support from the Joint Japan-World Bank Graduate Scholarship. I also hold an MSc in Development Studies (University of London, SOAS).

Prior to beginning my academic career, I worked in the global logistics industry (including supply chain management and maritime business), based in Japan and Singapore.
