About the Author:

Mike W. Peng is the Jindal Chair of Global Strategy at the Jindal School of Management, University of Texas at Dallas, and a National Science Foundation CAREER Award winner. Between 2005 and 2011, he was the Provost’s Distinguished Professor, which was created by UT Dallas to attract him to join the faculty. At UT Dallas, he has been the number one contributor to the list of 45 top journals tracked by Financial Times, which ranked UT Dallas as a top 20 school in research worldwide. Overall, 41 of his articles appear on the Financial Times list. Prior to joining UT Dallas, he was an associate professor at the Ohio State University. He has taught in five states in the United States (Hawaii, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, and Washington) as well as China, Hong Kong, and Vietnam. Professor Peng received his PhD from the University of Washington. He is widely regarded as one of the most prolific and most influential scholars in global strategy―both the United Nations and the World Bank have cited his work. Truly global in scope, his research has investigated firm strategies in Australia, Canada, Chile, China, Finland, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, Norway, Peru, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, the United States, and Vietnam. He has published over 90 articles in leading journals, over 30 pieces in non-refereed outlets, and five books. Used in over 30 countries, his textbooks, Global Strategy, Global Business, and GLOBAL, are global market leaders that have been translated into Chinese, Portuguese, and Spanish. A European adaptation, International Business (with Klaus Meyer), has been successfully launched. Professor Peng is active in leadership positions. He has served on the editorial boards of the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management Studies, Journal of World Business, and Strategic Management Journal, and guest-edited a special issue for the Journal of Management Studies. At the Strategic Management Society (SMS), he was elected to be the Global Strategy Interest Group Chair (2008). He also co-chaired of the SMS Special Conference on China in Shanghai (2007). At the Academy of International Business (AIB), he was Co-Chair of the AIB/JIBS Frontiers Conference in San Diego (2006), guest-edited a special issue for the Journal of International Business Studies (2010), chaired the Emerging and Transition Economies track for the Nagoya conference (2011), and chaired the Richard Farmer Dissertation Award Committee for the Washington, DC, conference (2012). He served one term as Editor-in-Chief of the Asia Pacific Journal of Management. During his editorial tenure, he managed the doubling of submission numbers and the successful bid to enter the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), which reported APJM’s first citation impact to be 3.36 and rated it as the top 18 among 140 management journals (by citation impact) for 2010. Professor Peng has extensive teaching experience at all levels―undergraduate, MBA, EMBA, PhD, executive, and faculty training programs. He especially enjoys working with PhD students, and has served as PhD program advisor at both Ohio State and UT Dallas. Some of his former PhD students are now professors at Babson, Cal State, CityUHK, Colorado, Georgia State, HKUST, Missouri, Northeastern, Oregon State, SMU, and UT Dallas. Endeavoring to bring out the best potential in PhD students, Dr. Peng has published with them in AMJ (3), AMP, AMR (2), APJM (5), ETP (2), JBV, JIBS, JIM (2), JM, JMS (3), JWB (2), and SMJ (2). Professor Peng is also an active consultant, trainer, and keynote speaker. He has provided on-the-job training to over 300 professors. He has consulted and been a keynote speaker for multinational enterprises (such as AstraZeneca, Berlitz, KOSTA, Nationwide, SAFRAN, and Texas Instruments), nonprofit organizations (such as Greater Dallas Asian American Chamber of Commerce and World Affairs Council of Dallas-Fort Worth), educational and funding organizations (such as Harvard University Kennedy School of Government, National Science Foundation, and University of Memphis), and national and international organizations (such as the US-China Business Council, US Navy, and The World Bank). Professor Peng has received numerous honors, awards, and grants, including a US Small Business Administration Best Paper Award, a (lifetime) Distinguished Scholar Award from the Southwestern Academy of Management, two “New Hot Paper” designations for two papers representing the entire field of business and economics tracked by Science Watch, a (lifetime) Scholarly Contribution Award from the International Association for Chinese Management Research (IACMR), an invitation to give a keynote speech at a Harvard conference, and a National Science Foundation CAREER Grant ($423,000). Professor Peng has been quoted in The Economist, Newsweek, Dallas Morning News, Smart Business Dallas, The Exporter Magazine, The World Journal, Business Times (Singapore), Sing Tao Daily (Vancouver), Brasil Economico (Sao Paulo), and Voice of America.
