Most of us in the IB community read and cite today’s top scholars extensively. Their work inspires us, yet we rarely get a chance to know the person behind these powerful ideas.

That’s why we here at AIB are proud to announce the launch of a new video series: Frontline IB. Every Thursday, we will publish a pair of conversations between our host, Ilgaz Arikan, and some of the biggest names in IB. Each interview will span about 30 minutes, covering a range of topics including the author’s professional journey, an overview of their body of work, and a number of topics they find promising for future research.

Now entering week two of this series, we’ve published a quartet of insightful interviews with a set scholars you’re sure to recognize: Peter J. Buckley, John Cantwell, Ram Mudambi, and David Teece. If you enjoy what you see, be sure to leave us a comment so we can keep the conversation going.

For a sneak peek at our upcoming episodes, be sure to check out the Coming Next Week section on our Frontline IB homepage. We look forward to sharing many more of these conversations with you throughout the coming year!
