I will discuss two papers that examine how historical imprints affect internationalization in China. The first examines how the early international business legacy left by the Treaty Port era (1842-1943) affects Chinese cities’ and firms’ ability to attract and channel contemporary foreign investment. Results show that two early international business conditions – Treaty Ports policy and overseas Chinese community – established an enduring set of institutions that affect cities’ and firms’ subsequent capability to attract contemporary foreign direct investments. Furthermore, we examine attempts to abolish and reactivate these early imprinting effects in subsequent “sensitive periods” – the Cultural Revolution and the Opening-up era – respectively. The second paper explores how entrepreneurs imprint their organizations, proposing that their imprint serves as an information filter, which in turn affects their decision-making and shapes their firm’s strategy. Empirical investigation of a unique longitudinal dataset of Chinese private entrepreneurs from 1993-2012 supports our hypotheses, showing that entrepreneurs’ communist ideological imprint negatively affects the internationalization of their firms and that available and credible information sources reinterpreting communism and information closure moderate this relationship. This research contributes to understanding imprints and their evolution and the internationalization of Chinese firms.
Chris Marquis is the Samuel C. Johnson Professor in Sustainable Global Enterprise and Professor of Management at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management at Cornell University. Currently he is on leave of absence from Cornell and is a Visiting Professor of Social Innovation and Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. He is also a Distinguished Visiting Professor at Peking University and Shanghai Jiaotong University. Prior to joining Cornell, he worked for 10 years at Harvard Business School. Marquis received a PhD in Sociology and Business Administration from the University of Michigan.
Professor Marquis’ teaching and research is focused on how business can have a positive impact on society and the natural environment. He is currently pursuing several streams of research. The first seeks to assess how firms’ and entrepreneurs’ social and environmental strategies and activities can be designed to maximize both business and social value. The second explores how environmental sustainability and shared value initiatives have developed in China. Finally, the third examines institutional change processes in emerging markets. These research projects build on Marquis’ earlier work that analyzed how firm behavior is shaped by broader contexts such as embeddedness in geographic communities and how environmental conditions during founding periods leave a lasting imprint on organizations. In particular, Marquis’ prior research examined the effects of these processes in the contexts of community-based social networks and the evolution of the US banking industry.
Marquis’ research has won a number of national awards including the 2006 William H. Newman Award for best dissertation across the entire the Academy of Management, the 2006 Louis R. Pondy award for best dissertation in organizational theory from the Academy of Management, the 2003 James D.
