THEME:  A continuing challenge in international business is that of
developing responsible, competent global leaders.  Every large-scale survey
of global business organizations since 1995 has identified a deficit of
global leadership capability as the leading concern.  Similarly, recent
surveys of business schools have identified increasing global leadership
competence or skills as a key challenge.  These concerns reflect a far
broader, societal-level concern that people at all levels of society have
need of global consciousness and leadership capability.

 

The call for the development of globally competent leaders begs numerous
questions, among them:  what constitutes competent and responsible global
leadership?  How can it be developed?




 

 

SCHEDULE & FORMAT:  The two-day symposium will involve academia and industry
in exploring issues and challenges of global business to management,
organization, and leadership.  The first day will set the tone with a
keynote speech by Professor Stephen Kobrin followed by a panel discussion.
The second day will be devoted to paper sessions organized around a number
of sub-themes focusing on global leadership, international business, and
international finance.  It will also include a keynote panel of leading
scholars on global leadership development.  Much of the program will be open
to interested parties including students, faculty and industry
representatives. 

 

SUBMISSION:  We welcome submissions of full papers of up to 20 pages
exploring the conference theme from broad perspectives including global
leadership, international business, and international finance.  Particular
emphasis is placed on international dimensions of Japanese and Asian firms.
All submissions will be double-blind reviewed, and will be evaluated using
the following criteria:  a) relevance of the topic to the symposium theme,
b) analytical rigor, and c) innovativeness, among others.  Papers should be
double-spaced, and should follow the referencing and formatting guidelines
for the Journal of International Business Studies (see
<http://www.jibs.net> www.jibs.net).  Paper presenters will be invited to
submit their manuscripts to a special edition of a leading Asian business
journal.

 

       Submission deadline:  Monday, 25 April, 2011

 

       Acceptance notification:  Monday, 16 May, 2011

 

       Submit your paper electronically (in Word or PDF format) to:  Dr.
Toshiya Ozaki ( <mailto:[log in to unmask]> [log in to unmask]), Prof. of
International Business, Rikkyo University.

 

COST:  There is no registration fee to participate in the symposium,
however, it is the responsibility of participants to cover their own travel
expenses.  Information about registration will be provided in late April.

 

PROGRAM CHAIRS:  Dr. Nobuya Takezawa, Prof. of International Business,

TRAVEL TO TOKYO: US State Department lifted its travel warning to Tokyo on
April 14. Things are getting back to normal in the metropolitan Tokyo area.
Two airports serving Tokyo (Narita and Haneda) are fully operational. All
public transportation including trains, subways and buses are running
without interruption. Supply of electricity is stable and there is no more
rolling black out. Our university is fully operational and students are
commuting normally. So are all the primary, secondary and tertiary schools
in the Tokyo area. The cosponsors of the symposium, Rikkyo College of
Business and Northeastern University College of Business Administration,
have been examining the developments carefully following the earthquake and
the nuclear situation, and came to the conclusion that we would hold the
symposium as originally planned.
