Full Bio

Dr. Jean-Paul Roy is  an Associate Professor at Smith School of Business. He received his Ph.D. in administration, with specializations in international business and organizational theory, from York University. He also holds an M.I.R. and B.Sc. (Hons) degree in social psychology from the University of Toronto.

Prior to joining Smith School of Business, Jean-Paul taught international business and cross-cultural management at the Schulich School of Business, York University (Toronto) and Memorial University (St. John's).

Jean-Paul's current research focuses on international strategic alliances, social networking, and cross-cultural management. He is particularly interested in how institutional environments influence the behaviours and performance of multinational enterprises and their executives. His most recent research endeavours follow two streams. The first stream examines those factors (e.g., the institutional environment, experience abroad, and social networking practices) that affect the partnering activities, concerns, and performance of multinational enterprises. The second stream investigates the social networking practices of managers in China and Japan, and how these practices are determined by the institutional environment in those countries. Jean-Paul was the recipient of the 2010 Smith School of Business New Researcher Achievement Award, and has twice been awarded major external Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) research grants.

He is a reviewer for numerous top tier management journals and his research papers have been published in a number of leading journals, including the Strategic Management Journal, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management Studies, International Journal of Human Resource Management, Journal of Organizational Behaviour, Asia Pacific Journal of Management, Management and Organization Review, and Political Psychology.

Jean-Paul is a regular participant, panelist and presenter at many international conferences, including those hosted by the Academy of International Business, Academy of Management, Asia Academy of Management, and the Association of Japanese Business Studies.

現在の主な研究テーマは、国際的戦略提携、ソーシャルネットワーキング、異文化経営論で、特に多国籍企業での制度や組織環境が企業の業績や動向、管理経営陣にどのように影響を与えるかに関心を持ち研究。最近の研究では次の二つの傾向に焦点を当てている。一つ目は、多国籍企業の提携活動、その利害関係の懸念、業績などに作用する要因(例:制度や組織環境、海外経験、ソーシャルネットワーキングの実践など)。二つ目は、中国や日本における経営者や管理責任者のソーシャルネットワーキングの実践でそれがどうのようにそれぞれの国の組織環境に影響し決定付けられるか。
