Strategic Management Forum 2013
The Internationalization Strategy of Chinese Firms

- Dialogue Between Scholars and Entrepreneurs



August 23 Friday, 2013


Shanghai Jiaotong University, Shanghai, China




China has become a powerful political and economical actor. In parallel with the “global workshop” and its impact of “made in China”, the internationalization of Chinese companies has become another engine of economic growth. The globalization of Chinese MNCs, in the long run, will partially change the landscape of global business competition.

In this context, and based on the successful organization of two previous international conferences on the same theme in 2011 and 2012, we invite you to participate the 3rd Strategic Management Forum. This year’s forum provides a unique opportunity to scholars, consultants and business leaders in this field. We seek scholarly papers, in-depth case studies, and talks from recent book authors and ongoing research projects on the globalization of Chinese enterprises.

We will invite promising papers to a special issue in the International Journal of Emerging Markets, expected to be published in 2014. Other quality papers have the opportunity to be published in two additional journals: GBOE (Global Business and Organizational Excellence) and Business Review.
