Hyunsun Park (entering class of 2016), a management student at YSB, has received an AmorePacific Scholarship from the Association of Korean Management Scholars’ (AKMS) for a paper presented to the Academy of Management.
Her paper, “Two to Tango: Team’s Intrapersonal Career Diversity, Leader’s Career Quality, and Team Performance,” was coauthored with Professor Hyuntak Roh and Yeejeong Ryou (entering class of 2015, Ph.D.). Drawing on the Intrapersonal Function Diversity Theory, which reconceptualized team functional diversity, this paper found an inverted U-shaped relationship between team members’ intrapersonal career diversity and team performance and a positive moderating effect of the quality of a leader’s career experience. The findings show that team members’ intrapersonal career diversity can have both positive and negative effects on team performance and that the quality of a leader’s career experience matters in managing the influence of team members’ intrapersonal career diversity.
Park said it was a delight for her to present the paper to the Academy of Management and a great honor to receive the scholarship. “I would like to thank and dedicate this award to Professor Hyuntak Roh, who passionately mentored me and encouraged me to grow as a scholar,” she said. She also thanked Yeejeong Ryou, who gave her advice and helped her collect the data for the research. She also thanked the AKMS committee and AmorePacific.
The AKMS reviews papers submitted at the Academy of Management’s annual international conference —the largest international conference in management studies — to select two Korean students for scholarships as recipients of the AmorePacific Best Academic Paper Award. The AKMS also awards four foreign students with the Samsung Economic Research Institute’s Best Academic Paper Award.
Eight students have received the AmorePacific Best Academic Paper Award since 2014. Six of them have been either MS or Ph.D. students from Yonsei, attesting to the talents of the YSB Management Department’s students. In Dr. Yong Shin (2015 graduate) and Dr. Bokyung Lee (2017 graduate) received the award in 2014. Other recipients have been Heeeun Jhang (entering class of 2008, joint MS/Ph.D.) in 2015, and Jeong Won Lee (entering class of 2014, joint MS/Ph.D.), and Tae Ung Choi (2017 graduate) in 2016.
