Prof's Studies of Corruption in Asia are in Demand Worldwide
Prof's Studies of Corruption in Asia are in Demand Worldwide A UT Dallas management professor’s findings on corruption in Asia are in demand by business universities around the world. Two articles by Dr. Seung-Hyun Lee, an associate professor in the Naveen Jindal School of Management, examine how bribery and other types of corruption influence business and profits in Asian countries. Lee, of the school's Organizations, Strategy and International Management area, also analyzes how U.S. firms fare when competing in such environments.Lee’s 2007 paper, “Corruption in Asia: Pervasiveness and Arbitrariness” uses two distinct factors to study bribery: Pervasiveness & Arbitrariness.The paper was co-authored by Dr. Kyeungrae (Kenny) Oh, a Jindal School doctoral alumnus now at the University of Missouri - St. Louis, Lee’s second paper, co-authored by JSOM faculty member Sungjin J. Hong, used data provided by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis and the World Bank to look at how corruption impacts profitability.That study, “Corruption and Subsidiary Profitability: US MNC Subsidiaries in the Asia Pacific Region,” concluded that subsidiaries of multinational corporations (MNCs) operating in the Asian region enjoy higher profitability in countries with lower levels of corruption.
