Welcome to the AIB History Project

AIB began with a meeting of 15 like-minded scholars looking to build a strong foundation for the field of International Business. Sixty years on, we’ve grown into a global community of over 3,000 academics, producing some of today’s most impactful research. This is the story of how we got here.

There’s a massive archive of historical documents, media, and data to explore below. But first, we’ve got a few suggestions to help you get started.
