Jerry Kim is an Assistant Professor at Rutgers Business School, where he teaches courses on technology, innovation, and strategy. His research focuses on how social structures such as status or networks shape the behavior of actors in market and organizational settings. Much of his work looks at these issues in the healthcare industry (hospitals, physicians, biotechology and pharmaceutical firms, etc.), but he has also studied settings such as baseball umpiring, executive compensation and virtual teams. His work has been published in journals such as the Academy of Management Journal, American Sociological Review, and Management Science, and has been covered by various media publications including The Economist, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and the New York Times. Prior to joining Rutgers, Jerry was an Assistant Professor of Management at Columbia Business School, where he received the Dean’s Award for Teaching Excellence in the Core, and the Singhvi Prize for Scholarship in the Classroom (i.e., “Professor of the Year”) selected by graduating MBA students.
