Marlon Mooijman

Assistant Professor of Management – Organizational Behavior

Marlon Mooijman an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior. He teaches in the undergraduate business minor program and MBA full-time program.

Trust, power, and ethics are at the heart of leadership—a good leader needs to cultivate trusting relationships, wield power wisely, and ignite people’s moral passions and steer them in the right direction. Bad leaders, in contrast, make life miserable for employees. Marlon studies two important sources of good leadership. First, he investigates how trust develops in relationships and how the emergence of power and status differences between people affects this trust development process. Second, he investigates the process by which people moralize their own and others’ behaviors, and how having a moralized worldview can both be good and bad: for instance, it can foster personal self-control and discipline but also promote interpersonal conflict and violence.

His work has been published in leading scientific journals such as Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Nature Human Behavior, Research in Organizational Behavior, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes. Besides work, he enjoys bike riding, hiking, drumming, and spending time with his wife and son.
