SAVE THE DATE-AUGUST 4, 2012 1st WORKSHOP ON EMERGING MARKET MULTINATIONALS CENTER FOR EMERGING MARKETS, NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY Saturday, August 4, 2012 (coinciding with the 2012 Academy of Management Meeting in Boston) Organizers: Alvaro Cuervo-Cazurra and Ravi Ramamurti Emerging market multinationals (EMNCs) have become an important topic of inquiry. Although EMNCs received less interest in the 1990s than the 1980s, research on this topic has re-emerged with renewed impetus. These firms have gained more visibility because some of them have emerged as world leaders in their industries and are undertaking bold acquisitions in developed countries. As a result, increasing numbers of researchers from developing and developed countries alike are paying attention to these firms and analyzing their behavior, leading to a lively debate about the contributions that the study of EMNCs can yield to theories of the multinational enterprise and beyond. The 1st workshop on emerging market multinational (EMNCs) organized by the Center for Emerging Markets at Northeastern will gather some of the leading scholars studying this topic for in-depth discussion on focused areas of inquiry about EMNCs. The workshop aims to (1) generate a better understanding of the topic and the underlying theory and (2) define potential areas of research that have not been analyzed in depth. It is designed for scholars interested in the topic and should be particularly useful for doctoral students and junior faculty that have started studying these firms. The workshop will take place on Northeastern University campus (very close to AOM hotels) on Saturday August 4th, 2010, from 8:45 to 20:00, coinciding with the 2012 AOM meeting in Boston. There is no participation fee but pre-registration is required because space is limited. Costs will be covered by the Center for Emerging Markets and the College of Business Administration at Northeastern University.
