Specialized in strategy, Professor Joaquín Garralda has spent over two decades studying the internal culture of business organizations and strategic analysis. This background has led him in recent years to the area of corporate social responsibility.
Professor Garralda has served as the UN Global Compact’s Spanish Association Secretary since 2000. He has been a member of the Ethics Committee of Morgan Stanley’s Ethics Fund (now Invercaixa), and he is involved in the development of manuals that permit the measurement and evaluation of CSR. His concern for business ethics goes back to 1992 when he designed and implemented the first course of business ethics at IE Business School. He is currently a patron of Fundación Lealtad, where he analyses criteria for transparency in the management of not-for-profit organizations.
He has combined his teaching career with intense professional activity as a consultant in the fields of organization and strategy in diverse companies, as a director at PricewaterhouseCoopers, and as a member of several managerial boards. He contributes regularly to leading media agents in the field of economics in Spain and Latin America, and also speaks at major forums and conferences.
Joaquín holds an MBA from IE Business School and a Degree in Economic Sciences from Madrid’s Universidad Complutense.
