Craig Crossland

Assistant Professor


Craig Crossland is an Assistant Professor of Management in the Mendoza College of Business. He received his Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University. Prior to joining Notre Dame, he worked at the University of Texas at Austin. Craig's research is in the area of strategic management, with a focus on senior executives and their effects on organizational outcomes. His work has been published or is in press at the Academy of Management Journal, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Strategic Management Journal, Strategic Organization, and two edited volumes. He serves as a member of several editorial review boards, and is the current Treasurer of the Research Methods Division of the Academy of Management. Before entering academia, Craig worked as a physical therapist and in a number of product development roles within the medical device industry. Although Craig is a fan of college football, has Irish heritage, and possesses a thick red beard, he maintains that any resemblance to the Notre Dame mascot is entirely coincidental.
