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.
