AffiliationAssistant Professor, Hitotsubashi ICS
- Organizational Behavior
- 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 U.S. while receiving MA (Human Resource Management) at University of Minnesota and PhD (International Management) at University of Hawaii. With such academic background, he developed an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and research.
It is possible to see Dr. Park’s emphasis on his research as bridging micro and macro organizational behavior studies. His doctoral dissertation, “Reputation Incongruence and Preference of Stakeholders”, is one example showing how he tries to understand individuals in workplaces under system level conditions. In this paper, individual level decision-making theories were hugely employed to test organizational level phenomenon. His comprehensive viewpoint also enriches his special areas such as organizational identity, organizational reputation, and work ethics, leading to publication in reputable peer-review journals like Journal of Organizational Behavior, Technology Analysis & Strategic Management, and Personnel Review.
In addition, his teaching philosophy is aligned with the interdisciplinary approach. While studying and teaching in higher educational institutions, he could have chances to expose himself to diversity and multi-cultural environment including Hitotsubashi ICS, which allows him to continue his passion of incorporating different areas not only for academic disciplines but also for cultural aspects.
His current research plan is to focus on following three topics: (a) multi-dimensionality of organizational identity, (b) national reputation and its impact on the decision of employees’ job relocation, (c) public perception on corporate crime and its association with corporate reputation, especially with CSR.
