The aim of EIBA is to serve as the core communication network for disseminating information and promoting international exchange in the field of International Business. Membership is open to individuals from Europe and elsewhere. At present, the Academy has more than 400 members from over 45 different countries representing all five continents.
EIBA organises an Annual Conference, which is hosted each year by a major European university (usually in early to mid-December). As a pre-conference activity, a Doctoral Tutorial for PhD students is organised at the same event!
A series of prestigious awards is presented during the EIBA Annual Conference, such as the Gunnar Hedlund Award for best doctoral dissertation, the Copenhagen Prize for the best paper written by a young scholar in International Business, the IMR International Marketing Award, the IJoEM Best Paper on Emerging Markets Award, the IBR Best Paper of the Year Award, the Best Thesis Doctoral Award, the EIBA Fellows Research Award, and the Distinguished EIBA Honorary Fellows Award.
