|The Management and Strategy (MAST) Cluster of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) conducts research and advisory work in three domains:
- Stakeholder management, with a special focus on complex investment evaluations. Unique research and advisory expertise has been developed in the optimal design of public - private partnerships (PPSs), triple bottom-line (TBL) measurement tools for projects with high external effects, and corporate social responsibility (CSR) policies;
- Sustainable mobility and infrastructure management, focused on assessing large-scale infrastructure projects such as port terminals, intermodal transport hubs, brownfield rejuvenation investments for mixed usage and greenfield development sites. The cluster builds upon more than 25 years of leading research and leadership in this area;
- International strategic management, with a focus on the governance and expansion strategies of large multinational enterprises and their subsidiaries. The cluster has achieved a world-class status in this field with numerous publications in leading scholarly journals.
The marine-related research of MAST focuses on themes such as port authority and port cluster strategic management, port performance management, interaction of ports with other transport modes and integrated evaluation of port projects.
