He previously taught at the A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Business at the University of California, Riverside.


Dr. Spicer’s research and teaching focuses on the intersection of business and society in a global economy.  His research has examined privatization policies and outcomes in post-communist countries; the effects of national context and identity on managers' ethical evaluations and behaviors; the processes that lead to the spread of corrupt business practices across regions and companies; the perils and promises of entrepreneurship in the context of deep poverty; and the long-term evolution of corporate sustainability programs and strategies.

He has published articles on these topics in the Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Business & Society, California Management Review, Industrial and Corporate Change, Journal of Business Ethics, Organization & Environment, Research Policy, Strategic Organizations and the Strategic Management Journal. Since January 2020, he has served as a co-editor of the journal Business & Society.
