Hyo Kang is an Assistant Professor of Management and Organization at USC Marshall School of Business. Hyo’s research broadly lies in firm strategy and business economics, with a focus on technological innovation and entrepreneurship. The key question in his research is how entrepreneurs as well as established firms strategically manage their innovation processes and outcomes in response to ever-changing business environments – both market and nonmarket dimensions. His works explore three different types of competition – product market competition, competition for labor forces, and competition for intellectual property rights – and how relevant policies reshape firm innovation strategies. Hyo earned his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business (Business and Public Policy Group). He holds a B.A. in Economics and an M.A. in Business Administration from Seoul National University.
