Biography

Glenn Hoetker is a professor and Dean’s Council Distinguished Scholar in the Department of Management in W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University. He is an affiliate professor with the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and a faculty fellow with the Center for Sciences, Law and Innovation and the Center for Organization Research and Design at ASU.

Prior to ASU, he was with University of Illinois, where he was the Julian Simon Faculty Fellow (2009-2011) and an associate professor of strategy and international business (2007-2011).  

The questions that fascinate Professor Hoetker sit at the confluence of strategy, innovation and globalization. He teaches in each of these areas and explore these questions in three inter-twined research streams. The first examines inter-organizational relationships including issues of partner selection, the structuring and governance of relationships, and their performance implication. The second examines the diffusion of knowledge across firms, industries and regions. The third examines the impact of national institutions on the first two streams, with a particular focus on Japan's economic and institutional environment. A smaller stream of papers examines methodological issues in management research.

Research Interests

The questions that fascinate me sit at the confluence of strategy, innovation and globalization. I teach in each of these areas and explore these questions in three inter-twined research streams. The first examines inter-organizational relationships including issues of partner selection, the structuring and governance of relationships, and their performance implication. The second examines the diffusion of knowledge across firms, industries and regions. The third examines the impact of national institutions on the first two streams, with a particular focus on Japan's economic and institutional environment.
