In the fast changing global economy, the need for cross-disciplinary approaches to phenomena such as the rise of multinationals from emerging economies, poses challenges that cut across the fields of international management, economics, finance, and international business.
Meeting the challenges of managing in this rapidly evolving environment, means that a Special Interest Group is needed to both identify and anticipate the new research agenda, and to muster resources to enhance our capacity to develop our academic skills and to lead the way to creating an environment in which academic research will engage with the non-academic community, in particular government and the commercial international business community.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- MNEs entry modes
- Sustainability challenges of MNEs
- MNEs and innovation
- R&D management across geographical and organizational borders
- Networks, joint ventures and alliances
- Institutional voids
- Emerging markets
- The role of institutions on MNEs strategy
- Internationalization theory
- Mobility of employees across borders
- Grand challenges in international management and international business
- Policy issues in international business
