VILLANOVA, Pa.—Villanova School of Business (VSB) professor Jonathan Doh, PhD, has been elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Management (AOM)—the largest and most prestigious professional organization of management scholars globally. Election as an AOM Fellow is a permanent designation and honors a select group of scholars who have made significant contributions to the science and practice of management and distinguished themselves at the top of their fields. 

“I am deeply humbled by this recognition from the most accomplished scholars in management,” Doh said. “It reflects well on the supportive culture of Villanova and the School of Business where teacher scholars are encouraged to excel in research, teaching and learning and in contributions to policy and practice.”

In addition to serving as Professor of Management and Operations, Doh also holds several other positions at VSB, including Associate Dean of Research and Global Engagement, Rammrath Chair in International Business and Co-Faculty Director of the Moran Center for Global Leadership. Arriving at VSB in 2001, his teaching and research focus on the intersection of international business, strategic management and corporate responsibility. Doh is a leading scholar in international business, who continues to have a substantial impact on his scholarly field, serving as an editor of and publishing in leading journals.

Doh has published more than 85 refereed articles, 35 chapters, a dozen teaching cases and eight books. Many of his publications appear in elite or top-tier management, international business and ethics/social responsibility journals, including Academy of Management Review, Business Ethics Quarterly, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management, Journal of Management Studies, Management Information Systems Quarterly, Organization Science and Strategic Management Journal, among others. His most recent books are Aligning for Advantage: Competitive Strategies for the Political and Social Arenas, and International Management: Culture, Strategy and Behavior, a best-selling international management text.

He has presented more than 80 papers at international conferences, and served AOM, the Academy of International Business, and the Strategic Management Society in numerous capacities. He has also served as Associate Editor and Special Issue Editor at several journals and competed a four-year term as Editor-in-Chief of Journal of World Business in 2018. He became General Editor of Journal of Management Studies, after previously serving as Senior Associate Editor. Doh was ranked as the 12th most prolific international business scholar for the period 2001-2009 and in 2015, he was elected a Fellow of Academy of International Business.

“Dr. Doh brings tremendous prestige to Villanova and is the epitome of the Villanova teacher-scholar, where scholarship and teaching complement each other,” said Joyce E. A. Russell, PhD, the Helen and William O’Toole Dean of VSB. “We are honored to have such a celebrated faculty member, role model and leader within the School of Business.”

Founded in 1936, AOM has nearly 20,000 members from over 120 countries that include professors and PhD students in business schools at universities, academics in related social science and other fields and practitioners who value knowledge creation and application.

“Dr. Doh richly deserves this honor, which is bestowed on less than one percent of the management scholars who belong to the Academy of Management,” said Donald Siegel, PhD, Foundation Professor of Public Policy and Management at Arizona State University and Dean of Fellows of the Academy of Management. “Jonathan was cited for his path-breaking research on international business, strategic management and corporate social responsibility. He is the quintessential intellectual boundary spanner.  Jonathan joins an elite group of scholars who have made major contributions to the science and practice of management.”
