RESEARCH BULLETIN, JUNE 2010 


CONNECTING RESEARCH TO THE COMMUNITY 
VOL. 3, ISSUE 4 


Wi Concordia University 
John Molson 


School of Business 





Welcome from the Dean Message from the Editor 


his issue presents an 
overview of research 
awards, grants, conference 


proceedings and publications by 
our JMSB faculty members and 
students since September 2009. 





t gives me great pleasure to 
present the latest edition of the 
JMSB Research Bulletin. As you 
will see in this bulletin, our faculty 
members and graduate students 
continue to create innovative and 
relevant knowledge. 





The research grant cycle for the 
academic year ended with some 
superb results for many JMSB 
researchers. These achievements 
are of particular significance given 
the severe cutbacks of the major 
public granting agencies. Congratu- 
ations to the successful awardees. 
As the economic recovery gains 
momentum, we hope that the environment for supporting 
fundamental and applied peer-reviewed research will improve. 
The continued dynamism of JMSB hinges on its efforts to be a 
ey player in the development of the knowledge base of society. 





| am happy to report that several of 
our faculty members were recently 
recognized for their research excel- 
lence. Yaxuan Qi, of Finance, received 
the 2010 Petro-Canada Young Innovator Award, ‘The Person and 
Society” Strategic Research Cluster. The award was created to 
support the work by young faculty and to recognize the efforts in 
creating innovative research and a positive impact on society at large.

The 2009-2010 Fonds de recherche sur la société et la culture 
(FQRSC) competition results were released and six JMSB appli- 
cants were awarded funding. Devasheesh Bhave, of Manage- 
ment, and Marion Brivot, of Accountancy, were selected among 
the Etablissement de nouveaux professeurs-chercheurs cate- 
gory. The Department of Management's Mehdi Farashahi, with 
co-applicants Claude Marcotte and Rick Molz, and the Depart- 
ment of Marketing’s Michel Laroche received funding from the 








JMSB hosted some significant and provocative researchers in recent 
months. Professor Andrew Karolyi of Cornell University’s Johnson 
School of Business, addressed the timely issue of the impact to 
financial markets of Sovereign Wealth Funds. Professor Cleo Paska

ence was held earlier this spring and gathered members from 
the research and business communities. Scholars included Ravi 
Ramamurti of Northeastern University and Eleanor Westney of 
York University. Leading executives from several multinationals, 
including Bombardier, Pirelli Tire and Rio Tinto Alcan, were also 
invited to share their views on the challenges and issues faced by 
Canadian multinationals doing business internationally. 


Change Will Affect Politics, Economics, Security and Organizations.” 


We are grateful to the major private donors including CIBC 
who provided support for new scholarships to our Masters 
and Doctoral Students. We also recognize RBC, Manulife and 
Laurentian Bank for sponsoring the numerous Professorships 
that were established over the past year. We congratulate the 
individuals selected by the committees for the Professorships. 
Special thanks go to committee members for their diligence and 
commitment in the selection process. 




















This summer, the city of Montreal will host the 2010 Academy of 
Management Annual Conference. A number of our faculty will take 
part in this large-scale event and | am proud that JMSB is working 
closely with AoM organizers to promote the event's ‘Dare to Care: 
Passion and Compassion’’ theme. | am also delighted to announce 
that Management Professor Gary Johns was named Fellow of the 
Academy. This election is of significant importance as the Academy 
has 19,000 members and less than 1% are Fellows. Dr. Johns will be 
inducted into the Academy at a special ceremony in August. Stay 
tuned for more research successes and exciting highlights from the 
AoM conference in the next issue of the JMSB Research Bulletin. 








As my term comes to an end, Associate Professor Harjeet Bhabra 
will take over the editorship of the JMSB Research Bulletin. | hope that 
you will join me in wishing him success in the new challenges ahead. 





| would like to thank the faculty members who have contributed 
to this issue as well as Mai-Gee Hum and Arlene Segal for assisting 
with its assembly. Thank you also to Karen Fiddler and Mary 
Genova for your excellent support over the past three years.
