  • Accolades
  • Jindal Group Earns Best Paper Award
  • Dr. Habte Woldu

    Dr. Habte Woldu

    Two professors and a student from the Naveen Jindal School of Management were recognized with the best paper award by the International Academy of Business and Public Administration Disciplines at its annual conference in April in Dallas.

    The paper, “Viewing Cultural Convergence and Divergence of Nations During Abnormal Times: Cultural Value Changing During and After Recent Economic Recessions and Shocks,” was written by lead author Dr. Habte Woldu, clinical professor and director of international management studies; Dr. Shawn Alborz, clinical assistant professor and director of the master of science in management and administrative sciences program; and Cheng Chen, dual degree graduate student in international management studies and business analytics.

    Dr. Shawn Alborz

    Dr. Shawn Alborz

    The paper examines the effect of an economic crisis on the cultural values of individuals. It concludes that cultural values can significantly change in countries which are significantly exposed to the global markets and undergo elongated and recurring economic crises, while countries that are less exposed to the global economy and as a result are not affected by the crises, demonstrate strong cultural convergence or little divergence in few cultural dimensions.
