George Washington University School of Business Welcomes Ki-Chan Kim to the Dept of Management

The George Washington University School of Business is pleased to welcome Dr. Ki-Chan Kim, a Professor of Business Administration at The Catholic University of Korea, to the GW’s Department of Management.

Kim brings his impressive resume to the School of Business. He received a PhD from Seoul National University and has researched at the University of Tokyo. Additionally, he researched at MIT as a visiting scholar. His research interests are modularization with IT, inter-firm relationship at the automotive industry, and supply chain management.

Kim is no stranger to leadership, and sits as the current President for the International Council for Small Business (ICSB) Board of Directors. As the second Korean head of the world’s oldest organization studying small and medium enterprises (SMEs), Kim told the Korea JoonAng Daily he would promote and share the successful cases of Korean businesses and the philosophy of Korean entrepreneurs.

“Although many Korean conglomerates are known for their entrepreneurship, the best examples are seen in Korean SMEs,” he said in the article. “I want to share the Korean experiences, dubbed K-entrepreneurship, through the council’s various activities – particularly with business leaders in underprivileged countries in Asia who lack the chance to learn from such cases.”

Kim is Past-President of the Asian Council for Small Business, the Asian regional affiliate of ICSB. Through his role as Past-President, he hosted the 2014 Annual ACSB Asian SME Conference in Seoul, South Korea. He is also one of the Chief Researchers of HeBEx Healthiness of Business Ecosystems, a new and innovative report seeking to assess the relative healthiness of a country’s creativity, opportunity, and productivity.
