SETTING AN EXAMPLE
This new issue of Changing Business illustrates the depth of the Carey Business School’s commitment to taking an active role in the culture of research at Johns Hopkins University.
As always, the magazine showcases the research projects of associate and assistant professors on our full-time faculty – in this edition, Hyeongmin “Christian” Kim, Emilia Simeonova, Tinglong Dai, and Haiyang Yang. But I’m equally proud to point out the contributions made, and the examples set, by two widely respected scholars, senior faculty members, who also serve among the school’s administrative leadership.
The cover feature (“The Price Isn’t Right”) highlights the extensive work by Professor Valerie Suslow, our recently appointed vice dean for faculty and research, on the economics of explicit price fixing and cartel operations. Additionally featured inside (“Pointing the Way to Healthy Choices”) is a study by Professor Kevin Frick, Carey’s vice dean for education. The paper co-authored by Dr. Frick, with researchers from JHU’s Bloomberg School of Public Health and Center for a Livable Future, considers ways to increase the sales of nutritious foods in low-income communities.
In 2016, Johns Hopkins marks the 140th anniversary of its founding as the first research university in the United States. Indeed, few American institutions of higher learning can claim such a long record of innovations that have benefitted so many people around the world.
This great tradition of knowledge creation continues at JHU, and the Carey Business School is proud to contribute to the university’s focus on research. For a sampling of the evidence, I invite you to turn to the following pages.
