Professor Mike W. Peng (U. of Texas at Dallas) visits M&O
On September 27th 2018, the highly accomplished international business and strategy researcher Mike W. Peng visited the department of Management and Organisation to give a talk entitled "Behind Theoretical Innovation".
Prof. Peng’s seminar offered insights into theory development for academic journals and covered practical aspects such as sublimating empirical findings to sharpen theoretical contributions and building a theoretical connection to specific academic journals. Beyond the well-attended seminar, several M&O researchers, including Jingshu Du, Marco van Gelderen, Yulun Ma, and Wouter Stam had the opportunity for one-on-one conversations with Professor Peng. Professor Peng is currently the Jindal Chair of Global Strategy at the Jindal School of Management, University of Texas at Dallas. He is also a National Science Foundation CAREER Award winner and a Fellow of the Academy of International Business (AIB). At the University of Texas at Dallas, he has been the number one contributor to the list of 45 journals tracked by Financial Times, which ranked his institution as a top 20 school in research worldwide.
Prof. Melissa Cardon (Haslam College of Business at U. Tennessee) visits M&O

In the week of October 1, Melissa Cardon, Nestlé Professor of Business Administration at University of Tennessee,visited the Department of Management & Organization for a 4-day research visit.
As part of this visit, she organized a ‘Meet the Editor’ session on October 1, for an audience of researchers from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the University of Amsterdam, the University of Tilburg and other institutions. During this session, Prof. Cardon discussed key insights in publishing articles, based on her extensive experience as an author, reviewer and editor, by discussing the three most common reasons why articles get rejected.


Melissa Cardon has considerable publishing track record, which includes recent publications in the Academy of Management Review, Journal of Management and Journal of Management Studies. She currently serves as a Field Editor for the Journal of Business Venturing and Editorial Board member of Entrepreneurship: Theory and Practice, Journal of Management Studies, and Human Resource Management Review. She is also a long-time volunteer for the American Cancer Society with their Relay for Life program. Her most recent work is on entrepreneurial passion and how entrepreneurs as individuals and within teams can unleash their passion to get the best results for themselves and their organizations.
During her research visit, prof. Cardon also spent much time reviewing individual researchers’ work and providing valuable feedback. Finally, on Thursday, October 4 she presented an innovative experiment about crowdfunding, whether male/female funders receive more money from male/female funders if they happen to be attractive, based on expectancy violation theory.
