CoursesOrganizational Behavior 1, Global Network Project
Before joining the Graduate School of International Corporate Strategy (ICS) at Hitotsubashi University in March 2017, Dr. Jin Suk (Jin) Park taught diverse management courses at University of Hawaii at Manoa. He obtained his BA (Psychology) degree from Seoul National University in Korea. He also studied in the U.S. while receiving his MA (Human Resource Management) at the University of Minnesota and PhD (International Management) at the University of Hawaii. This background has supported the interdisciplinary nature of his research.
Dr. Park’s research emphasizes the connections between micro- and macro-level organizational behavior studies. His doctoral dissertation, “Reputation Incongruence and Preference of Stakeholders”, investigates the behavior of individuals in workplaces under system-level conditions. In this paper, individual level decision-making theories were employed widely to test organizational level phenomena. His special areas of interest include organizational identity, organizational reputation, and work ethics. He has published his research in the Technology Analysis & Strategic Management, and Personnel Review.
Dr. Park’s teaching philosophy is aligned with his interdisciplinary approach. While studying and teaching at various higher educational institutions, he has experienced diverse, multi-cultural settings like Hitotsubashi ICS. Such settings allow him to incorporate different areas not only in terms of academic disciplines but also of cultural features. His current research plan focuses on the following three topics: (a) multi-dimensionality of organizational identity; (b) national reputation and its impact on the decision of employees’ job relocation; (c) public perceptions of corporate crime and its association with corporate reputations, especially with CSR.
