Jim Chen's research has appeared in journals such as Information Systems Management, Systems Development Management and Logistics Information Management.

With little more than $100 in his pocket, Jim Chen came to the United States and made it big. It wasn’t easy though. Culture and language were barriers at Northern Illinois University College of Business where he enrolled in the Master of Business Administration program. He would record, transcribe and translate lectures, looking up each word in the dictionary.

His research interests include E-commerce, Web application development methods, knowledge management and decision support systems.

Chen holds a doctorate from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and is chair of the Business Computer Information Systems Department in St. Cloud State University’s G.R. Herberger College of Business.
