Dr Hyemi Shin

Senior Lecturer

Department: Newcastle Business School

Dr Hyemi Shin is a lecturer in Strategic Management and Responsible Business.

Hyemi joined Newcastle Business School in 2017. She graduated from Yonsei University (English Literature and Applied Statistics as double majors) in South Korea and her postgraduate qualifications include an MS in Business Administration and Research and a PhD in Management (Strategy) from ESSEC Business School in France. Prior to her postgraduate degrees, she worked in a U.S. PR company based in Seoul, South Korea, as a market researcher.

Her research centres on the Business and Society relations from several perspectives of organizational theory. The rise of the importance of non-financial performance of business, non-market business strategy, and Business and Society interactions has inspired her over the years. Such research interests drove me to view “Corporate Social Responsibility”(CSR)/ “Sustainability” as an emergent organizational field or (more provocatively) a new market. In her current research, she explores the emergence and diffusion of CSR/sustainability professionals, CSR/sustainability standards, and the CSR/sustainability “market” in various contexts.
