Teaching and research interest

Professor Kim studies status competition in market and non-market (i.e., government and regulatory) settings. One stream of research investigates how status influences the strategic outcomes for life sciences and healthcare firms, from alliance formation to FDA approval speed for new drugs. Another stream focuses on how status considerations bias the decision-making process of individuals and organizations in a wide range of contexts, including executive compensation, baseball umpiring, and patient treatment at large hospitals. His research has been published in journals such as the Academy of Management Journal and Management Science, and profiled in The New York Times, The Economist and other media outlets. Professor Kim teaches the Strategy Formulation course in the MBA and Executive MBA programs, and technology and innovation strategies in Executive Education. Graduating MBA students selected him as the winner of the Singhvi Prize for Scholarship in the Classroom in 2011 for his dedication to teaching and ability to communicate knowledge. He also received the Dean's Award for Teaching Excellence in 2008.
