Christine Holmström Lind is Director of Advanced Studies and a senior Lecturer in International Business at the Department of Business Studies at Uppsala University. She has teaching experience in International Business at the bachelor, master, and executive MBA level, and acts as a thesis advisor at the undergraduate-, master- and doctoral level. Christine has also worked as project manager and corporate (senior) market analyst for many years. Prior to her doctoral studies she was a consultant specialized in international expansion strategies.
Christine received her Licenciate degree and her Ph.D. at the Department of Business Studies at Uppsala University. This research was concerned with the strategic role of multinational subsidiaries as creators and disseminators of knowledge and innovations and a special attention was put on the development of so called “Centres of Excellence” subsidiaries. Other research interests concerns the development and transfer of knowledge/innovations in multinational corporations, the occurence of knowledge spillovers from MNC subsidiaries to local host country firms, and the relationship between entrepreneurship, innovation and growth.
Currently her work concerns the external impact of foreign MNC subsidiaries, in particular the question of “how” knowledge spillovers from MNC subsidiaries occur and how they affect innovation activities- and growth among local firms in the host country (see project description below). A part of this research is conducted in collaboration with scholars at the CIBI (Centre of International Business and Innovation) at Manchester Metropolitan University and Manchester Business School (MBS).
She has been engaged as an ad-hoc reviewer for several international business journals, and she is a member of the European International Business Association and the Academy of International Business. She is also part of Uppsala University’s Centre for Research on Innovation and Industrial Dynamics (CIND).
Christine was awarded the Wallander-scholarship for excellent Ph.D. thesis in 2006.
