The IM Division FIU Business Emerging Scholar Award recognizes the contribution to international management scholarship by a junior scholar, defined by having completed their Ph.D. (or equivalent) within the previous eight years, at the time of nomination. The award is selected by the division's Professional Awards Committee, chaired by the Past Division Chair and consisting of the three past chairs and two recent winners of the IM Division Hyundai Motor Eminent Scholar Award. Nominations for this award are solicited from the IM Division Membership each year in the spring. This year the committee was comprised of William Newburry (Chair, 2023 IM Division Chair), Tatiana Kostova (2023 Eminent Scholar), Don Lessard (2022 Eminent Scholar), Katherine Xin (2022 IM Division Chair) and Jaeyong Song (2021 IM Division Chair). The IM Division thanks them for their fantastic efforts overseeing our division's professional awards selection process. The division is very grateful to FIU Business for the sponsorship of this award. Sponsors like FIU Business are essential to the effective functioning of our division, and greatly appreciated.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Jackson G. Lu of Massachusetts University of Technology (MIT) has been selected as the 2024 IM Division FIU Business Emerging Scholar! Please join us at the International Management Division Awards & Recognition Session during the 2024 AOM Meeting tentatively scheduled for Monday, August 7 where Dr. Lu will be recognized. More details will be provided closer to the conference dates.
Jackson G. Lu is the Sloan School Career Development Associate Professor at the MIT Sloan School of Management. He received his PhD from Columbia Business School in 2018. He currently serves as a Senior Editor for Organization Science, a Senior Editor for Management and Organization Review, and an Associate Editor for Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
Jackson studies culture and globalization through two distinctive research streams. His first research stream examines the "Bamboo Ceiling" experienced by Asians despite their educational and economic achievements in the United States. His second research stream elucidates how multicultural experiences (e.g., working abroad, intercultural relationships) shape key organizational outcomes, including leadership, creativity, and ethics.
Jackson has published in top general science journals (Nature Human Behaviour, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences), management journals (Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Organization Science), and psychology journals (Annual Review of Psychology, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Psychological Science). His research has been featured in over 300 media outlets (e.g., BBC, The Economist, The Financial Times, Harvard Business Review, NPR, The Boston Globe, The New York Times, The Washington Post). He was recognized as one of the 40 Best Business School Professors Under 40 by Poets & Quants.
Once again, please join me in congratulating Jackson G. Lu as the 2024 recipient of the IM Division FIU Business Emerging Scholar Award!
