Rebecca Chung-hee Kim*
Assistant Professor of Corporate Social Responsibility and International Management, based at The Nottingham University Business School, Malaysia Campus
I joined Nottingham University Business School, Malaysia Campus, as an Assistant Professor in March 2010 and previously taught Strathclyde and Edinburgh University Business School on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Management of International Relationships and Management across Cultures.
Prior to entering academia, I worked in the fields of foreign diplomacy, government, NGO and CSR consulting business as a professional of international relations for twelve years. Awarded British-Chevening Scholarship to study in the UK during the final term of my MBA study in Korea University Business School, I selected the MIM (Master of International Management) course in Strathclyde University, Glasgow for investigating Corporate Social Responsibility phenomena in the international business. Based on the foundation of the MIM study, my pioneering PhD research on the link between CSR and IHRM strategy of the UK and Korea had been accomplished by award of full-time three-year school scholarships.
Currently I am engaged in researches on CSR in international business through active collaboration with scholars/practitioners from the UK, Malaysia, Ireland and Korea. These include missing employee in CSR discussion; Institutional dynamics of CSR-HRM relationships; CSR comparative study between the UK and Korea; and CSR and corporate value. I am especially keen to develop a ‘CSR comparative model of Europe and Asia’ by employing the idea of institutional interaction and change to engage in a more comprehensive analysis of regional differences and the reasons behind them.
