The Alan Rugman Visiting Fellow for 2018-19 announced

We are pleased to announce the Alan Rugman Visiting Fellow for the 2018-19 academic year, hosted by the John H. Dunning Centre for International Business at the Henley Business School, University of Reading.

The new fellow is:

In Hyeock (Ian) Lee


Dr. Inhyeock “Ian” Lee is Associate Professor of International Business and Strategy at the Quinlan School of Business, Loyola University Chicago, USA. He received his PhD in Business from the Kelley School of Business, Indiana University in 2007. His primary research interests focus on the location strategies of multinational enterprises and entrepreneurial firms contributing to cluster formation. Other research interests involve how regional strategies of multinational enterprises and international new ventures link to firm performance, and how founders’ gender of new ventures translates into innovation activities. He has published in leading journals such as Regional Studies, Journal of Business Research, IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, Journal of International Management, and Small Business Economics among others. Prior to joining academia, he was the Deputy Director at the Ministry of Trade, Industry & Energy in Korea for eight years.

The Alan Rugman Visiting Fellowship was established in 2015. This is an annual award which honours the work of the late Professor Alan Rugman, and is therefore available to scholars whose work is explicitly linked to topics aligned with his academic interests. The award is in part available thanks to a donation from Helen Rugman in memory to her late husband.

Visiting fellows are expected to give at least one seminar, and to spend between 2 and 4 weeks in residence over an academic year (between September and June), and are seeking to develop joint research with our faculty.
