"Family Ties and Organizational Design: Evidence from Chinese Private Firms"
Thursday, October 1, 4:00-5:30 p.m.
3240 Weill Hall

Abstract: Family firms comprise a large share of industrial activity in both developing and developed countries, but little is known about how they operate. Using a unique dataset of Chinese private firms, in this paper we investigate how family ties with firm heads affect managerial compensation and job assignment. We find that family managers earn higher salaries and received more bonuses, hold higher positions, and are given more decision rights and more job responsibilities than non-family managers in the same firm. However, family managers face weaker incentives than professional managers as seen in the lower sensitivity of their bonuses to firm performance. Our findings are consistent with the predictions of a principal-agent model that incorporates family trust and endogenous job assignment decisions. We show that alternative explanations such as taste-based favoritism, succession concerns, and risk attitudes are unlikely to drive our key results, and discuss implications for economic performance.

Yiching Wu

Michigan China Fellows (MCF) presents
Modern China Politics and Society Series:
Cultural Revolution and Contemporary China

Yiching Wu, Assistant Professor, Anthropology and History, U-M

5:00PM-7:30PM, Wednesday, Oct. 15th
School of Education (610 East University Ave), 1322, Tribute Room
(Working Language is Chinese and pizza will be provided.)

• How do we understand the Cultural Revolution TODAY?
• What was the Cultural Revolution? When was it? And whose Cultural Revolution?

The Cultural Revolution, arguably one of the most important events in twentieth century Chinese history, has been the subject of numerous controversies and debates. In this talk Professor Wu will begin with questioning the conventional wisdom about the Cultural Revolution, and proceed to raising new questions regarding the nature, process, and historical significance of this immensely important event. He will argue that such apparently innocent questions have in fact no self-evident answers and conclude the talk with mapping the revival of interests in the Cultural Revolution in contemporary Chinese intellectual and political discussions.

Yiching Wu is an assistant Professor in Anthropology and History at UM. He received his PhD of anthropology from the University of Chicago in 2007. His dissertation received the Daniel F. Nugent Dissertation Prize in Historical Anthropology in 2008. Prof. Wu specializes in contemporary Chinese politics and culture. Among his interests are popular social movements, class formation and consciousness, socialism and post-socialist transitions, and politics of hegemony and counter-hegemony.

MCF (mcfgoblue@umich.edu) is a non-political group established to offer a common platform for its members to share scholarly pursuits, build personal connections, and communicate ideas on current affairs. Placing a significant emphasis on Chinese society, culture and history, MCF cherishes the idea of nurturing friendship, learning, and growth.

The Modern China Politics and Society series is sponsored by the Center for Chinese Studies.

MBA Essentials and Entrepreneurship Program

The program is based on the premise that a great idea is not enough. The ability to transform an idea into a successful business requires a foundation of business knowledge that supports the acquisition and application of entrepreneurial skills.

I am pleased to announce a new program intended to complement existing resources at the University of Michigan that operate at the intersection of breakthrough ideas and commercialization.

The program, offered by the Stephen M. Ross School of Business and its Zell Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies, is called MBA Essentials and Entrepreneurship. The program is based on the premise that a great idea is not enough. The ability to transform an idea into a successful business requires a foundation of business knowledge that supports the acquisition and application of entrepreneurial skills.

MBA Essentials and Entrepreneurship will be open to faculty members (either instructional or research), graduate students, Health System residents and interns, and anyone who holds a fellowship or other postdoctoral position at the University of Michigan (but outside the Ross School of Business).

We’ve designed the content for people who can envision themselves developing an idea or starting a company at some point in the future. Some participants may have a general interest in entrepreneurship and in building a foundation of business knowledge. Others may be poised to start a company or to commercialize a specific idea or piece of intellectual property.

There are two components to the Ross MBA Essentials and Entrepreneurship Program. The first component covers concepts, frameworks, and tools from key first-year MBA core courses such as accounting, finance, and marketing. The second component focuses on what it takes to develop and launch a business. The topics in entrepreneurship include idea generation and protection, commercialization, feasibility analysis, competitive landscape, business planning, finding the right people, and how to fund a new venture.

The program will be offered during Winter 2009 on Fridays and Saturdays (8:30am – 4:30pm) for seven weeks starting in January. In addition to classes, several informal “social hour? talks by entrepreneurs will be scheduled on Fridays following class.

We plan to offer this program at a frequency reflecting the demand for it. In the longer term, the program fee will be in the range of $4,000-$5,000. Some financial support is likely to be available. However, given the short time until the inaugural session beginning in January 2009, full financial support will be provided for those accepted into the initial offering only. As there are a limited number of spots in the program (approximately 50), we will be encouraging people to apply as soon as possible. An Information Session will be held on October 8 (details below). Applications to the program will be due by 5:00 p.m. on October 17, and we expect to notify applicants about both their admission and financial support by November 5.

MBA Essentials and Entrepreneurship is an exciting addition to the University’s robust commitment to bring creative ideas into the marketplace in the State of Michigan and beyond. I hope you will bring this program to the attention of those people in your schools to whom you think it might appeal. More information is available at www.bus.umich.edu/MBAEE.

Information Session
Date: Wednesday, October 8th
Time: 4:30-5:30 pm
Location: E0530 – Ross School of Business (Executive Residence building)

If you have questions about the program or the information session, please contact Susan Slavin at mbaessentials@umich.edu or 734.763.2376.

Sincerely,

Valerie Suslow
