Sylvie Chevrier was trained in management and social sciences in France and Canada. Her international experience aroused her interest in cross-cultural issues. She earned a PhD from the University of Québec at Montreal (Canada) in 1995 and her doctoral thesis was among the first dissertations to study the management of European work teams. She later got an accreditation to conduct research (Habilitation à diriger des recherches) from University Paris-Dauphine on cross-cultural management.
Sylvie Chevrier teaches at University Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée (France) and is in charge of a Master in Human Resource Management and International staffing. Every year, this Master trains about 25 apprentices who share their time between work in a HR department and classes at the University.
Sylvie Chevrier is the deputy director of the research centre in management of Paris-Est University, namely Institut de Recherche en Gestion. She is also in charge of international partnerships for the Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée University Economic and Management department.
Her research interests focus on cross-cultural management and especially on international work teams, whether co-localised or dispersed. She has conducted research in many countries (Canada, France, Switzerland, Vietnam, Madagascar, Spain, Belgium, Sweden…). She is the author of several articles, chapters and books on cross-cultural management in French and English.
