Biographical Sketch for Ko Wang

 

 

After working for several real estate companies in Taiwan, Ko came to the U.S. in 1981 to pursue graduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin. While there, he obtained an MS in Community and Regional Planning (1982), an MBA with a real estate concentration (1984), and a Ph.D. in real estate and finance (1988). While pursuing his Ph.D. degree, Ko also worked full time at a leading real estate consulting firm and later became a partner of a start-up consulting firm, which at its peak had 30 employees.

In 1989, Ko began his academic career as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Finance at the University of Texas at Austin. He joined California State University at Fullerton (CSUF) shortly thereafter and was promoted to Full Professor in 1992. Starting in 1995, Ko began his concurrent affiliation with the Department of Finance at The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), where he became a chaired real estate professor and the founding Director of the newly established School of Hotel Management. In the following two years, he successfully offered Hong Kong's first hospitality executive training program, established an advisory committee consisting of industry leaders, and placed all its students into summer internships. Ko returned in 2001 to CSUF, served as a Visiting Professorial Fellow of the National University of Singapore since July 2003, and taught for Tsinghua University as a Visiting Professor in July 2004. In September 2005, Ko joined the Zicklin School of Business, Baruch College, City University of New York as the Newman Chair in Real Estate Finance and the founding chair of the Department of Real Estate. Within two years, Ko revised a degree program (BBA in Real Estate), created three new degree programs (MBA in Real Estate, MS in Real Estate, and a Ph.D. program in Real Estate within the Finance specialization), and started an executive training program for the Department. He also established an advisory board for the Department.

Ko publishes both in real estate and finance journals, which include Real Estate Economics (14), Journal of Real Estate Research (13), Journal of Urban Economics, Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics(3), International Real Estate Review (5), Journal of Business, Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, and Review of Financial Studies. He also co-authored a book on Real Estate Investment Trusts (Oxford University Press: New York), co-edited a monograph on Real Estate Valuation Theory (Kluwer Academic Publishers: Boston), and co-wrote 21 teaching cases and teaching notes on real estate and finance issues faced by firms in Asia (distributed by Harvard Business School Publishing and European Case Clearing House).

Ko is the editor of Journal of Real Estate Research (since 1998), founding executive editor of International Real Estate Review (since 1997) and co-executive editor of the Journal of Housing Studies (since 2006). As the editor, Ko successfully placed JRER into the coverage of SSCI. (JRER ranked first among SSCI real estate journals in 2012 in terms of impact factor.) He has served on the editorial boards of 7 journals, was keynote speakers of conferences, serves on the board of several organizations, received the achievement award from the International Real Estate Society, and appointed as a Fellow of several organizations. Ko chaired the founding meeting of the Asian Real Estate Society (AsRES) in 1996 and has served as its Executive Director until 2002.
