Professor Jeong’s research centers on interactions between firms and states in global markets, with a particular emphasis on firms’ strategic decisions in challenging environments. Her current studies focus on the causes and consequences of corporate corruption by asking (i) what leads companies to engage in bribery and other forms of corruption in international business and (ii) how do companies’ bribery decisions and misbehavior affect social and corporate welfare. She examines these questions through the lens of international business, political economy, and strategic management. Her studies on the causes of supply-side’s corruption during the U.N. Oil-for-Food Program were published in Strategic Management Journal (2012) and International Handbook on the Economics of Corruption (Vol. II, Elgar, 2012). Professor Jeong's recent study looks into the role of social status and its dynamics in large-scale corporate bribery of senior politicians (forthcoming, Strategic Management Journal). Prior to joining American University, Professor Jeong taught at HEC Montreal and George Washington University. In 2011, she was named a finalist for the Academy of Management’s Wiley Blackwell Outstanding Dissertation Award in Business Policy and Strategy.
