Bio: Jane Lu is a Chair Professor at the Department of Management, College of Business, City University of Hong Kong. She received her MBA from China Europe International Business School and Ph.D. from the Ivey School of Business, Western University. Before joining academia, she worked as an export manager in a large Chinese trading company and as the head of the corporate finance department of a Dutch bank in Shanghai. Her management experience has significantly shaped her research interests.

Jane’s research centers on the intersection of organization theory and strategy with a focus on international strategy and non-market strategy. Her earlier research investigates broad issues underlying a firm’s international strategy, as well as specific strategic questions, such as how to make a successful foreign entry into a country or how to manage successfully in a foreign country. Her recent research continues this line but focuses on emerging market firms and their non-market strategies. Her work has appeared in leading journals, including the Academy of Management Journal, Administrative Science Quarterly, Strategic Management Journal, Journal of Management, and Journal of International Business Studies. She served as Editor-in-Chief of the Asia Pacific Journal of Management (2016-2018). She is currently a Senior Editor of the Journal of World Business and a Consulting Editor of the Journal of International Business Studies.
