Conversation with Dr Juan Ma "Business Solutions for Social Problems" - Emerging Markets, Women's Empowerment & Education

Dr Juan Ma is an Assistant Professor of Strategy at INSEAD; but also lectures at some HBS executive programs during the winter term. Her research has tackled the issue of "institutional distrust”, which is the collective distrust in business institutions (corruption issues etc) and the implications on firm behaviour. She has done a tremendous amount of analysis on this behaviour in emerging economies; especially in India and China. She has also looked at institutional corruption in financial markets. The corollary in her research analysis, however, also studies on how positive private business behaviour can help social issues that are particularly acute in these emerging economies. This last area of study is currently a passionate topic of discussion for her.

Professor Ma earned a doctorate in Business Administration from Harvard University, and received the Wyss Award for outstanding doctoral dissertation in business administration, as well as the Weiss Family Program Fund for outstanding research in development economics.

She holds a bachelor degree in Business Economics from the University of Toronto, and in 2011, received the Governor General’s Silver Medal. Her work has been published in several reputed academic journals, including the Strategic Management Journal, and cited by media outlets including the Financial Times and Forbes.

Furthermore, Professor Ma acts as global competitiveness advisor to companies across the world, as well as governments and non-profit organisations including Industry Canada and the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) Canada. Before pursuing her doctorate, she advised DFAIT Canada as an economist. Professor Ma was born in Nanjing, China, and speaks English, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
