Bio

Vasilia Vasiliou is a PhD candidate in Business and Fellow of the Center for Women and Business at Bentley University. Her research focuses on how corporate governance and gender diversity relate to the appointment process of new directors, board dynamics, and career issues. This research links organizational behavior (OB) theory to novel qualitative data on the experiences of male and female directors to better understand the persistent underrepresentation of women on corporate boards. She holds a BSc (Hons) in Mathematical Science from City, University of London, and an MBA from the Cyprus International Institute of Management. Her direct access to corporate directors and strong background in mathematics enable her to combine qualitative and qualitative methods to produce impactful research. Vasilia teaches OB and has served as advisor for senior capstone projects within Bentley's Honors Program.
