Carolyn Biltoft serves as a research associate for CIBER. She received her doctorate in Modern World History from Princeton University in 2010, with a specialization in globalization, international institutions, multinational corporations, and international political economy. Dr. Biltoft is currently pursuing two GSU-CIBER-funded research projects. The first focuses on the growth of emerging market multinationals in the global tea sector. The second is a multi-phase project entitled “The Complexity Advantage: Gaining Strategic Assets for the Global Age,” which combines research on Global Strategy, Organizational Leadership and Complex Systems. Biltoft is working with GSU-CIBER-affiliated faculty and staff to turn this research into a series of workshops and publications that will help managers acquire the sensitivity and skills needed to operate successfully in complex global environments.
