Conference "Knowledge Transfer and Cultural Diversity in MNCs" July 1-2, 2014, University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland, HEG Arc, Neuchâtel, Switzerland Dear colleague, Multinational Companies (MNCs) increasingly play an important role in international exchanges and world domestic product. They are further more and more considered as the main engine for knowledge transfers worldwide. For MNCs, the topic of knowledge transfer has been studied in different ways, and from different disciplinary perspectives. While economists have mainly studied the effects of knowledge transfer on MNCs' productivity, management scholars have rather shed light on the processes of transferring knowledge. In this singular conference, we invite papers that look at knowledge transfer and take intercultural diversity into account. More precisely, two objectives are constitutive of this conference, the first is to create relationships between economic sciences and management sciences, and the second is to stimulate debates around the role of intercultural diversity for knowledge transfers in MNCs.
