For 20 years, AIB Insights has served as the Academy of International Business’s primary outlet for interesting, topical, and thought-provoking articles that examine issues affecting our scholarly community. The IB field encompasses not only researchers, but also teachers, students, practitioners, and policymakers. AIB Insights articles are written to reach across these institutional boundaries, eschewing technical jargon for accessible, clear, and, above all, actionable content which can be applied across multiple professional contexts.

Given its vital importance within our association’s publication portfolio, the Executive Board of the Academy of International Business is pleased to announce the new editorial team they have selected to helm AIB Insights from January 2022 to December 2024:  Editor William Newburry and Associate Editor Elizabeth Rose.

William Newburry is Chair of the Department of International Business and the Ryder Eminent Scholar of Global Business at Florida International University. He is also a Non-Resident Senior Research Fellow at the Nanyang Business School Center for Emerging Markets, an AIB Fellow and President of the Consortium of Undergraduate International Business Education (CUIBE). His impressive body of research includes 45+ articles published in top-tier journals, along with five books, and another 20+ chapters in edited books. His expansive record of service to the IB community includes serving as Chair of the AIB Latin America Chapter for six years, on the Senior Advisory Board of the Review of International Business and Strategy, as well as on the editorial review boards of JIBS, and several other journals in the IB ecosystem.

Elizabeth Rose is Research Chair Professor of Business Policy and Strategy at the Indian Institute of Management Udaipur. A dual citizen of New Zealand and the United States, her previous academic appointments have been in the U.K., New Zealand, Finland, and the U.S. Her work has appeared in a variety of top-tier journals, including the Journal of International Business Studies. She has strong editorial experience, including co-editing the launch of Academy of Management Collections, and has held leadership roles in several academic professional organizations, including AIB’s Executive Board as Vice President for Administration and as Secretary-Treasurer of the AIB Fellows. She is also the founding chair of the AIB’s Australia and New Zealand Chapter (now AIB Oceania) and is a past President of both the Australia and New Zealand International Business Academy (ANZIBA) and the Association of Japanese Business Studies (AJBS).

Building on the successes of Bill Newburry’s previous term as Associate Editor of AIB Insights  alongside Editor John Mezias, he and Beth Rose will continue on the publication’s path of promoting applicable insights and diverse perspectives throughout all areas of the IB discipline. In addition to continuing AIB Insights’s trajectory toward online accessibility, employing a digital-first publication strategy, the team intends to bring their content front-and-center at future AIB events through a planned series of research development workshops. Please join us in congratulating these newly selected leaders as they work to expand the reach and relevance of AIB and the international business discipline as a whole in the years ahead.
