Andrea Kim
John Molson School of Business, Concordia University

Andrea Kim is currently a PhD student at the John Molson School of Business in Management. Her MSc research thesis focused on firm factors which impact consumer scepticism associated to corporate social responsibility activities. At the David O'Brien Centre for Sustainable Enterprise, she coordinates the social media activities for the Centre. Currently, she is working on a project with Dr. Paul Shrivastava which seeks to develop a conceptual framework on consumption and its role in the post-modern society. Central to this research is to convey how individual consumption needs and habits may be fulfilled through rejoining the act of creation and production. Organizational implications and these alternative and sustainable consumption forms will be investigated.
