Brian Nagy has been a member of the Management and Leadership Department at Bradley University since 2008. He is currently an associate professor of management in the Foster College of Business.


Brian believes his teaching serves two purposes. He feels that first, the theories, practical information, and analytic tools related to strategic management must be conveyed and understood in his classroom. In addition, Brian strives to prepare students enrolled in the strategic management course for the trials ahead of them – challenges related to both the corporate environment as well as sometimes graduate-level studies. Dr. Nagy’s classes blend lectures, group projects, experiential learning activities, and case studies for an interactive and interesting set of experiences. He currently teaches Strategic Management and Business Policy - M L 452.


Brian’s current research interests focus on investigating how managers and business owners should best manage their relationships with key stakeholders, a salient topic in the strategic management and entrepreneurship literatures. His interests also include investigating how to best manage new ventures after start-up. Brian's research is published in academic journals such as Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, International Entrepreneurship and Management Journal, and Journal of Research in Marketing and Entrepreneurship
