Stratégie et Politique d'Entreprise

 Profile picture


Elie Sung is an Assistant Professor at HEC Paris. She obtained her PhD at Georgia Institute of Technology. Her research focuses on firm innovation strategy, and the integration between public policy and firm strategy. She has explored this topic by examining how firms and the courts jointly shape patent policy and how in turn those policies shape firms’ innovative activities.

Elie's work was recognized by several awards and fellowships. Her dissertation was supported by an NSF Doctoral Dissertation Research Grant (#1759991) to the Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP) program. She was a finalist for the Kauffman Prize for Best Student Paper at the REER conference and received the Best Paper for an Emerging Scholar Award at the European Policy for Intellectual Property conference. As a reviewer, she has been recognized with multiple awards from the Academy of Management Conference and the journal Research Policy.

Prior to starting her PhD, she worked in management consulting on projects with telecom and media operating companies, and national regulatory authorities. Other professional experiences include working at the French Telecommunications and Posts regulatory authority (ARCEP, French equivalent of the FCC) and at a major investment banking company. She completed an undergraduate degree in Mathematics, and graduate degrees in I.T. engineering and in applied economics.
