Sven Horak teaches and researches in the field of international management and organization at The Peter J. Tobin College of Business at St. John's University in New York City. Most of his research focuses on the role informality plays in human interactions at the dyadic, group and network level, predominantly in an international context. By drawing on insights from the neighboring social sciences, in particular economic and organizational sociology, social psychology, and ethics, his work advances knowledge on the anatomy of informal institutions and how they moderate managerial behavior.
