Bio/CV: 

Samuel Sponem is Chairholder of the International CPA Chair for Research in Management Control and Associate Professor at HEC Montreal.

       His research and teaching interests focus on the use and impacts of management control and accounting tools in private and public organizations. He worked on how budgets are used and on the variety of roles played by accountants in large organizations. He also studied the different roles of management control and performance measurement tools in non-profit and creative organizations.

       In the field of higher education, he worked on how faculty and administrators perceive the introduction of performance measures in French universities as well as their impacts on academic identity and university governance. During his year as a Visiting Scholar at the UC Berkeley Center for Studies in Higher Education, Samuel Sponem wishes to further this work by studying how universities react to budget cuts and the impact of such measures on university strategies.

Following his studies at ENS Cachan (École normale supérieure de Cachan), Samuel Sponem received his PhD in Management Sciences from Paris-Dauphine University. He was an Assistant Professor at the Conservatoire national des arts et métiers in Paris before joining HEC Montréal’s faculty in 2010. He is visiting scholar at the UC Berkeley Center for Studies in Higher Education for 2015-2016.
