Impact Director, Centre for Sustainable Business and Senior Lecturer in Business Ethics and Sustainability, King’s College London
Dr Catherine Tilley is a Senior Lecturer in Business Ethics and Sustainability at King’s College London and Impact Director for the Centre for Sustainable Business. She studied for her MA and PhD at Cambridge University, and for her MBA at Manchester Business School. She has been a Visiting Scholar at Stirling University and is a Fellow in Construction Engineering Management at Cambridge University.
Catherine worked for over 20 years in management consultancy, mostly at McKinsey & Company, with a particular interest in organisational and strategic problems. She returned to academia in order to focus on research about decision-making for sustainable business. Her research now examines two phenomena: first, the ways in which people in companies incorporate social and environmental sustainability into their decision-making; and second, the ways in which complex socio-technical systems adapt to climate pressures.
She is particularly interested in the ways in which people resolve problems of competing commitments in their working lives and this influences both her research and her teaching. Her teaching has included work with undergraduates, graduates and executives on questions of strategy, organisation, leadership, decision-making, ethics and sustainability.
