Executive Education, Firm Performance, Gender
We explore the relationship between the education and gender of executives and firm performance using mainland China firm data. We find that executive education is positively associated with a firm’s market performance. However, this positive relationship is not moderated by executives’ gender. Our research result is consistent with the existing literature that firm market value increases with executive education, and that executive gender does not matter in terms of the relationship between higher education and firm performance.
