Marius van Dijke is professor of behavioral ethics at Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), Erasmus University. He currently serves as head of the department of Business-Society Management.

His research is concerned with behavioral ethics and leadership of high integrity. Examples of issues he examines in his research include when power stimulates moral and immoral behavior, why people so deeply value social justice, and what the role is of intuitive and controlled processes in moral judgment and behavior. These issues have important implications both for theory and practice, supplying tools that stimulate employees and managers to function both productively and ethically.

He has published widely on these topics in Management and Psychology journals, for instance in Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Management, Journal of Applied Psychology, Leadership Quarterly, and Journal of Experimental Social Psychology.

Marius served as Director of Doctoral Education of the Erasmus Research Institute  of Management from April 2015 until December 2017.
