ESMT Berlin welcomes three new professors in January 2020, strengthening the business school’s faculty in the areas of accounting, organizational behavior, and management practice.

Maximilian Müller and Eric Quintane join ESMT as associate professors of accounting and organizational behavior, respectively; Monica Perez Trujillo is an affiliate professor of management practice.

Previously, Maximilian Müller was a professor of financial accounting at WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management, where he also earned his doctorate in business administration, and a visiting scholar at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. He has published several research papers in leading finance and accounting journals with a focus on disclosure and taxation in capital markets. Müller also serves on the editorial board of the European Accounting Review and advises a quantitative asset management firm. He has won multiple awards for his teaching.

Before joining ESMT, Eric Quintane was an associate professor at the School of Management of the University of Los Andes, Colombia. He holds a PhD in management from the University of Melbourne, Australia, and is an Honorary Research Fellow at the university’s School of Psychological Sciences. His research focuses on understanding the dynamics of interpersonal networks and their consequences for individuals, such as creativity or burnout. Quintane’s work has been published in peer-reviewed international journals for management, psychology, and sociology. He teaches courses related to organizational behavior and theory, social networks theory and methods, and change leadership.

Monica Perez Trujillo leads the EQUAL4EUROPE project at ESMT. The joint project of eight research institutions and accreditation organizations funded by the European Commission aims at removing barriers to the recruitment, retention, and career progression of female researchers. Originally educated as a psychologist and historian, Perez Tujillo received her PhD in criminology from the University of Melbourne, Australia. She has worked on gender issues for the last 20 years, as a researcher, lecturer and consultant. Her recent research topics have centered on sexual violence among students and staff in higher education institutions, intimate partner violence, alcohol-related crime in night-time leisure zones, and programs for women in prison. Her current interests are policies, procedures and practices that increase gender equality and prevent gender-based violence.
