Overview: The COVID-19 pandemic caused disruptions to the social, economic, and political landscape of countries across the globe. These disruptions also impacted firms, large and small, with some firms thriving and others failing to survive. The global health crisis continues to drive changes and transformations to the scope, nature, and dynamics of international business. Product and process innovations, digitization, cross-border mobility, new ways of work, business resilience, and corporate social responsibility, are just but some of the topics currently garnering attention as firms, societies, and governments emerge from the pandemic.

The conference seeks to enhance knowledge development of international business matters. In addition to the main theme, the conference will feature various tracks for competitive sessions and panels, keynote speakers from academia and business, a paper development workshop, pedagogical sessions, and networking opportunities.

The conference is an opportunity to present scholarly work and obtain critical feedback in a professional setting. We encourage the participation of professors of all ranks and doctoral students. Submitted papers can range from works-in-progress to complete articles aimed for journal publication; they can be conceptual, theoretical, and empirical. Case studies can also be submitted to the Teaching IB track.
