Dr Agafonow is a Professor at ESSCA School of Management, and serves as Associate Editor in the journal Business Ethics: A European Review.
He is a well-travelled academic with a significant international track-record, whose pathway brought him to France where ESSCA is headquartered. Alejandro completed his PhD in Spain, at the Complutense University of Madrid.
He coined the term “value devolution” to better conceptualize what makes social enterprises special, different from for-profit firms and traditional non-profit organizations. A question that has preoccupied Agafonow lately, is the paucity of research on the tangible organizational mechanisms that drive social enterprises.
