Jin Hyung Kim is an Assistant Professor of International Business and joined George Washington University School of Business (GWSB) in 2017.

His research interests include non-market strategy, particularly 1) corporate lobbying strategy and foreign multinational enterprises (MNEs), 2) country and societal institutions and corporate lobbying, and 3) regulatory change and business-government relations. Professor Kim explores what non-market strategies firms implement to influence the non-market environment to achieve better outcomes in a global strategy context and what types of institutions drive their nonmarket behaviors. Also, Professor Kim studies the implications of non-market environments and its interactions with firms such as regulatory change and business-government relations.

Professor Kim did his undergraduate study in management and international business at Yonsei University in Korea, and then served a company commander role as a commissioned officer in the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF). Following military service, he joined Oliver Wyman as a management consultant and was involved in multiple corporate and global strategy projects. He left Oliver Wyman to pursue a Master’s degree at the School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) at Columbia University and then earned his doctorate degree from Harvard Business School (HBS).
