Welcome to London and to the University of Greenwich. We are excited to be hosting the 48th Academy of International Business UK & Ireland Chapter Conference.
We are very excited since this will be the first ever online AIB-UKI conference.
International Business is challenged by some states where globalisation is not seen as a necessary vehicle for prosperity and economic growth. Businesses face obstacles to internationalise their operations in markets when higher tariffs are imposed. A big question emerges: Will economies focus more on their domestic markets rather than opening them to FDI and international trade? The AIB-UKI conference in Greenwich will examine those challenges by stimulating interesting discussions. The Mega Trends in International Business offer an interesting angle on those topics and their implication for research. Moreover, for many years the International Business research community has been referring to emerging markets, those terminologies can be challenged by asking the right questions in the right setting. International Entrepreneurship offers interesting angles to analyse the challenges entrepreneurs face in the international arena. Social capital and effectuation are becoming essential during these challenging times. We aim to offer a setting where scholars will creatively debate and propel the field forward. We welcome paper submissions relevant to the conference’s theme but we also welcome ALL submissions in IB and relevant to our tracks.
Keynote speakers: Professors Garry Bruton, Tamer Cavusgil, Sylvie Chetty and Nicole Coviello
We are looking forward to e-welcoming you at Greenwich and we do hope that you will join the first ever online AIB-UKI conference.
Conference Chair: Spiros Batas
