Theme: Developing IB Research & Education for a New Decade
Submission Deadline: July 17, 2020
Registration Deadline: October 18, 2020
Overview: The last decade has been remarkable for the field of international business and the AIBSE chapter. Entering into the new decade, we may want to refresh our thinking about our work as researchers and educators in the area of international business. With some new trends happening in the IB world, such as population and demographic shifting, slower economic growth, speed of innovation etc., we may need to ask: what is the most interesting “yet to be answered” research question within the IB field? What is the biggest challenge still facing the international business community? Will current theories and theoretical frameworks still hold? Can more interdisciplinary research and research practices across disciplines be produced? Will any new research approaches to qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods emerge?
Since this new uncertain environment affects all areas of business, there is no special track devoted to the theme, rather we encourage submissions in their respective tracks that directly address conducting international business in the new environment.
