In this edition of Smith Business Close-Up with the University of Maryland’s
Robert H. Smith School of Business, Cristian Dezsö talks about the wage gap
between men and women and how the children of CEO come into play. The gap
between wages earned by men and women is still a pervasive worldwide phenomenon.
But new research finds that when an organization’s male CEO has a daughter, the
relative pay for women at those firms goes up, narrowing the gap.
Dezsö teaches the global economic environment and the business and government
courses in the part-time MBA and undergraduate programs. His research examines
the impact of top executives on firm performance, and the moderating effect of
executives- demographic characteristics and firms- corporate governance
arrangements. In addition, his applied game theory research examines issues
related to firm reputation and technology adoption.
Smith Business Close-Up is co-produced by the Robert H. Smith School
of Business and Maryland Public Television. The television segment focuses on
the latest thinking in business management, and features in-depth interviews
with Smith School faculty and other members of the school’s community of
