Min Jung Kim is an assistant professor in the Strategy, Entrepreneurship, and International Business group at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s Gies College of Business. She holds a Ph.D. in Business Administration from the University of Minnesota. Her research aims to understand how external environments affect firms’ strategies and outcomes. First, she studies how the geographic concentration of industry activity influences firms’ technological innovation and entrepreneurship. She is especially interested in the dynamics of industry clusters (i.e., changes in concentration over time). Second, she studies how adverse conditions—such as adverse regulatory events, policy uncertainty, and trade wars—affect firms’ technological innovation and investment configuration strategies. Her work also examines the role of geographic concentration in the relationship between adverse conditions and firms. Her work has been recognized by several grants and awards, including Strategy Research Foundation Dissertation Grant, Seth/AIB Dissertation Best Proposal Prize and Scholarship, SMS Annual Conference Best Paper Prize Finalist and Best Ph.D. Paper Prize Finalist, and Gies Research Grant.
