Choi joined the Entrepreneurship Faculty at Loyola Marymount University in 2003.[1][3] In 2005, Choi produced a paper that showed that Asian-Americans were far less likely to be hired as executives at Caucasian-owned businesses than Asian-American owned businesses.[4] In 2006 he produced a study that showed online piracy was a driver of disruptive innovation in the economy, stating that online piracy could be examined from a management and entrepreneurship perspective, rather than purely through a legal prism.[5]
