Biography

As a teenager, (Joe) Nan Zhou could not complete his high school education during the Cultural Revolution. He worked as an "intellectual youth" in the farm for almost 6 years and an apprentice carpenter for about one year. Later, he studied at Fuzhou University as a "worker-peasant-soldier" student and graduated (without a degree). Luckily, he passed a national examination for overseas graduate study organized by the Ministry of Education in 1981. As a result, he earned a MBA from Idaho State University in 1984 and a Ph.D. in Business Administration with a major in marketing from University of Utah in 1987. In 1994, he took his sabbatical leave from Acadia University in Canada. He came to City University of Hong Kong. He fell in love with the place and decided to stay. A founding member of the Marketing Department, he served as Acting Head/Head from August 1997 to March 2009. He is a leading scholar in China marketing. In 2003-4, he received the only grant in the Management Science category of the prestigious NSFC-HKRGC Joint Research Grant Scheme for that year. In 2008, at Wuhan University, he was appointed Changjiang Scholar Chair Professor in the area of Qi Ye Guan Li (Enterprise Management) by the Ministry of Education of China. He was then the only professor to be appointed in this area since the launch of the Changjiang Scholar program in 1998. He completed his first full marathon after turning 51 years old, and is an honorary manager of the cross-country team at City University of Hong Kong.
