From the Paper:

"Andrea Jung is one of the most powerful female executives in the United States, making a study of her leadership style necessary, not only for women who aspire to executive positions, but for all people who aspire to executive positions. Jung was the child of two highly-educated, first-generation immigrants from China who moved to the United States in order to provide their children with better educational opportunities (Andrea Jung, 2008). Her parents instilled a strong work ethic in her children, which Jung embraced at an early age, earning high marks throughout her early education and going on to graduate with a BA from Princeton University in 1979 (Andrea Jung, 2008). From there, she began a remarkable career in management."
