Wooseok Jung is a Ph.D. candidate in the Management & Organizations Department at the Kellogg School of Management. His research interests are in organizational theory, reputation and status, corporate social responsibility, and non-market strategy. In his dissertation, he explains how market competition and rivalry prompt elite U.S. law firms to reinforce their social performance by changing internal reward systems and acquiring new partners. In addition to his dissertation, he has developed his research interest in the relationship between business and society by studying the behavioral mechanisms that stakeholders rely on to enforce social norms. A paper from this research was published in a leading scholarly journal, the American Journal of Sociology. In future projects, he seeks to deepen the theoretical and empirical understanding of corporate citizenship by illuminating its impact on employee career development and network management.
