Taking International Business to the Next Level - Emerging Issues, Strategies and Economies
The global economic crisis has challenged key discourses in international business practice. Yet, what does IB research have to contribute to these new discourses such as risk management, emerging multinationals, and limits to European integration? While fundamental IB topics related to theories, concepts, and approaches remain valid, on-going challenges have evolved regarding the operations, strategies, alliances and local impact of multinational enterprises. Furthermore, we must pay attention to diverse emerging issues in international business from climate change to state interventionism.
The conference has a focus on European aspects of international business, such as the impact of the European response to crisis, the euro up and downs, how is the internationalization of European firms affected, or the implications of the debt crisis in an increasing number of European countries.
The 37th EIBA conference is hosted by the Faculty of International Business, Academy of Economic Studies from Bucharest, Romania. Romania is a new EU member state, an emerging economy which is representative for the shifting West-East paradigm. Is Eastern Europe going to remain specialized in low cost products and cheap labor, or are there different patterns of specialization emerging? The conference will have one track on emerging markets in general and another track on specialization issues in Central, Eastern and Southeastern Europe.
