About the SIG
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.
Aims and Objectives
- Provide a forum for debate and discussion on the interface between international business, area studies and international management
- Encourage and facilitate high quality cross-disciplinary research, integrating across the fields of international business, area studies, and international management research
- Develop close links between this SIG and associated learned societies
- Act as a bridge to develop linkages between researchers in international business and international management and end users, including companies and governmental and non-governmental business support agencies
- Promote the development and support of doctoral students in international business and international management
- Contribute to the development of the international business and international management curricula at undergraduate and postgraduate levels
- Shaping the future research agenda through a programme of events held during the year and at the annual conference
- Regional seminars (joint with for example AIB UK & Ireland)on research methods for developing international business and international management for doctoral students (one in the North of England, one in the South and one in Scotland)
- Development of system of online information sharing by researchers and doctoral students that are members of the SIG
- Workshop with United Kingdom Trade & Investment (UKTI, the trade and investment promotion arm of the government) and other business support agencies on how researchers in international business and international management can develop research projects and research dissemination with companies
- Following on from this, a workshop on how to develop impact from research in international business, area studies and international management
- The establishment of working groups on issues of special interest, for example qualitative research methods as applied to International Business and Management.
- Exploring the value of, and establishing, international networks, through applications for external support and funding.
- Application for research council funding for specific projects in line with the SIG goals, e.g., ESRC Research Seminars competitions.
- Other functions of the SIG will be to feed in recommendations to the research and funding councils, in relation to International Business and Management, e.g., in relation to programmes and panel membership.
