Scholarship 2012

November — Hoon Jang, Ph.D., presented the following three studies, "Career choice factors of job seekers and the search for employment in small businesses (conference proceeding)," "Confucian ethics and strategic leaders in East Asian firms," and "Founders' dynamic capabilities and venture creation" at the 43rd Decision Science Institute (DSI) Conference in San Francisco. The first study examines why job applicants seek employment in small businesses by using Partial Least Square (PLS) - Structural Equation Modeling (SEM). This study enables local business leaders as well as scholars to understand how entrepreneurial firms attract and retain employees despite their smallness. In addition, two other presentations deal with the Confucian values of Asian managers and the dynamic capabilities of entrepreneurs. While the former explores the cultural backgrounds of non-Western business practices, the latter investigates the psychological origins of new ventures.
