Tell us about your research?
My reasearch specialisation is about the corporate capital structure, corporate performance and valuation, investment strategy, and asset protection and allocation.

Research on capital structure is still far from the end. We need to understand how managers decide their optimal capital structure, what is the determinant and the dynamics of this capital structure. We know that optimal capital structure leads to maximizing corporate and share holder value, the ultimate goals of the company.

People also constantly look for superior investment strategy in order to use it to achieve life prosperity. Research on investment strategy is always interesting and never ends.Subiakto Sukarno, MBA

What are changes that your research bring to the management thinking?

My research on capital structure will bring new understanding on the differences on the determinant and dynamics of the capital structure of the companies from developing countries due to differences in institution, environment, legal, and behaviour. Research on the capital structure ussually focuses for the companies that come from developed countries which have different institution, environment, legal base, and behaviour.

My research on the investment strategy, asset protection and allocation will bring the application purposes to enrich the current theoritical understanding.

How do you inspire your students to lead?

I inspire my student by setting the example and giving the leader stories in class. I give example based on my previous experience in my working life. I also bring leader stories such as : Warren Buffet, Jack Welch, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates through reading and watching movies assignment. The story about how Amazon change the level of playing field in the books publishing and distribution always amaze my students.

What’s your favorite thing to do that doesn?t involve teaching/research?

I like doing things that help people to grow and prosper. I feel good when I see people succeed because of me.

I like reading, listening to good music especially jazz music, and exercising thru jogging and bicycling.

What does to lead means to you?

We are all basically a leader. We at least lead ourselves to go through all confusing choices in our daily life. When we have family we are the leader of our family at least co leader of our family. So we need to learn and practice leadership in order to achieve our life objectives. We need to define our purpose of life and learn how to achieve it in the most effective and enjoyable way.
