Frédéric Godart is an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at INSEAD, in Fontainebleau, France. His research focuses on factors leading to the emergence of creativity in organizations and on the global dynamics of creative industries.

In terms of sectors, he covers fashion and luxury (e.g., design, modeling, watchmaking, footwear).

He also holds an MPhil in Social and Political Sciences from the University of Cambridge (Trinity College) in the United Kingdom, an MSc in Management from Sciences Po Paris, and is a former fellow of the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan in France.
