Hakan Ener is assistant professor in the Department of Entrepreneurship. He does research on top management teams in entrepreneurial firms. One of his main interests is the "management experience pitfall," a theme emerging from his dissertation, which showed that entrepreneurial firms led by the most experienced top executives in their industry do not typically achieve the highest performance. This work has won a worldwide doctoral research award from the Center for Creative Leadership in the US, and was nominated for the Strategic Management Society's Best Implications for Practice award.

He holds a Ph.D. in management (with a specialization in strategy), which he completed at INSEAD's two campuses in France and Singapore.
