As the summer draws to a close, business schools are
welcoming their new faculty cohorts to campus for the new academic year. At
University of Virginia’s Darden
School of Business
, seven new professors are joining
the school for 2019-2020.

Two of these professors are in the area of Strategy, Ethics
and Entrepreneurship.

One of those is Yo-Jud Cheng, who has a DBA from Harvard Business School.
Cheng studies corporate governance and management teams.

The other is Dennie Kim, who has been focusing on how
society-wide factors influence cooperation between organizations. Kim recently
received a PhD from University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management.

Darden is also getting a pair of new professors in the area
of Technology and Operations.

Vidya Mani, a specialist in supply chain management,
comes to Darden from Penn State’s Smeal
College of Business
. Panayotis Markou’s research looks at how
organizations can manage disruptive risks, and his appointment at Darden
follows a postdoc at University of Cambridge’s Judge Business School.

There are three professors in other areas who Darden is
bringing on this year.

Gaurav Chiplunkar is joining the Global Economies and
Markets area after completing an economics PhD at Yale University. His research
has looked at how industrial policies and labor market variables influence
organization and worker behavior.

James Naughton joins Darden’s Accounting area after
being a professor at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.

Naughton has a DBA from Harvard Business School and a JD
from Harvard Law School. He has explored the economic choices and financial
disclosures organizations choose to make, and the institutional and regulatory
context that influences those.

Finally, Laura Morgan Roberts is a new professor of
practice in Darden’s Leadership and Organizational Behavior area. Roberts’s
research involves the role of race in workplace identity, and the intersection
of leadership and race. She has a PhD from the University of Michigan.

The arrival of these seven professors highlights one of the
key advantages of top business schools: they attract a highlight qualified pool
of faculty members, which shapes the kind of experience students have.
