Michael R. and Mary Kay Hallman Fellow & Associate Professor of Strategy
University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business
Michael Jensen’s research focuses on the role of social structures in markets. In the process of doing so, he views markets as social structures that encompass social networks and market identities, both of which shape economic opportunities.

His current projects explore the role of identity in the creation of markets for illegitimate products and in what kinds of markets robust market identities are most effective.
Michael is currently on the editorial boards of Academy of Management Journal, Administrative Science Quarterly, and Strategic Management Journal. He currently teaches courses on corporate strategy, strategic social networks, and negotiations in the BBA, MBA, and Ph.D. programs.
