Yeongsu (Anthony) Kim
- Assistant Professor - Management

Professor Kim is an assistant professor of management at Western Kentucky University. Through his scholarship, he brings a strategic human capital perspective to the social and organizational contexts in which it is developed and employed. Particularly, he studies how employee mobility (network), star performers, strategic leadership, CEO human capital, and organizational knowledge impact organizational outcomes, usually in the form of innovation, corporate strategy, and international strategy. While his primary area of research is strategic human capital and strategic leadership (CEO), he continually tries to expand his research interests to include pertinent topics. Through this, he seeks to bridge the micro-macro divide within management to better understand strategic decisions within firms. Dr. Kim holds a PhD in management from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, specializing in strategic management. Additionally, he holds a master's degree in strategy and international business, which he earned from INSEAD and Seoul National University, respectively. Aside from research and teaching, he also enjoys playing baseball and analyzing sports data.
