Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr Carlos Ferreira is an Assistant Professor at the Centre for Business in Society, Coventry University. Carlos’ research interests focus primarily on how economies are made and changed, with an evolving interest in how alternative economic spaces and actors are imagined and constructed. Located at the intersection of business and policy, his work explores two main topics: how data and humans come together in business environments; and how moral and ethical concerns are translated into action in complex institutional environments.

Vision Statement

Economic phenomena don’t emerge naturally; they are constructed. My research focuses on how people, ideas, technology, data and power all come together in economic assemblages to produce the modern economy – or how they fail to do so. For this purpose, my work takes a multidisciplinary approach, informed by disciplines such as economic geography, economic anthropology, marketing and economics.

In addition to my research work, I am the Academic Director for the Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA). In that role I am responsible for the overal design of the DBA, support the supervisors in ther work with the DBA candidates, and oversee the acadic integrity of the programme. I also deliver a number of workshops. I also deliver lectures on business ethics to the MBA programme, and I have produced a teaching case on business ethics, used across various FBL modules.



Dr Carlos Ferreira joined Coventry University in January 2014. He holds a BSc in Psychology, a PgDip in Marketing and an MSc in Applied Environmental Economics. Before his academic career, he worked in the marketing research industry in Portugal.

Dr Ferreira’s doctoral research focused on markets for biodiversity offsets. The resulting thesis brought together Social Studies of Finance and Neo-Polanyian Instituted Economic Process approaches to identify the generative mechanisms involved in the creation of these markets. This doctoral research was funded by the Sustainable Consumption Institute, University of Manchester.
