Everlyne ("Eve") Misati is an assistant professor of strategic management and public policy at the George Washington University School of Business (GWSB). She earned her Ph.D. in Business Administration, with a focus on the areas of Entrepreneurship, Strategy, and International Business, from Florida International University (FIU).

Her work has been published in outlets including the Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Business Ethics, Africa Journal of Management, Journal of Business Research, Human Relations, Group & Organization Management, and the Journal of Organizational Behavior.
