Business Expert Press (BEP) seeks management scholars to write books on topics related to International Management or International Business.  We particularly seek books on leading-edge topics such as, but not limited to, international business in the services sector, doing business in evolving governmental and institutional environments, international finance, doing business in the global middle class, and doing business in India or Latin America or other emerging markets. 


BEP publishes concise (100-150 pages), academically sound and applied books that provide supplemental material for undergraduate, MBA, and executive business education as well as for the executive education and business professional markets.


BEP has a strong track record in publishing and distributing books across all fields and emerging topics in business, to provide supplemental material for undergraduate, MBA, and executive business education. Books are available in both electronic and print formats. Books can be supplemented, as needed, with cases, articles, newsletters and podcasts.  BEP distributes its books through ECCH, Xanadu, SIPX and Harvard Business Publishing – the leading providers of course packs.  Visit BEP at to get a sense for who and what we publish in business.


Reasons to publish a book with BEP include, to (i) enhance your teaching, (ii) promote your consulting practice, (iii) address a specific need, or (iv) build your reputation. You earn royalties. BEP generates substantial sales to business and higher education libraries.  There are some 7000 such libraries worldwide.   Prices paid for library sales are substantial, yielding significant royalties.  


Suitable material for the executive teaching and training market segment is sparse. Most educators rely on extracts from textbooks, articles, readings, and cases, typically bound as custom packets. The best teachers often distribute some of their own work in these custom packets. If you have your own “teaching notes” or PowerPoint presentations, these can serve as the starting point for a short book.


As the collection editors for international business, we will review your proposal and offer feedback on your manuscript prior to approving it for production. Professional copy editors help you polish the manuscript. BEP uses a 120-day production timeline from start to printed book in-stock.


Business Expert Press is headed by Stewart Mattson, a former editor-in-chief at McGraw-Hill. Stewart ran a publishing division at McGraw-Hill with revenues of $100 million that published hundreds of successful titles. Stewart obtained his MBA in International Management from the Thunderbird School of Global Management.


We urge you to leverage your expertise into a short, focused book for the business education market. If you have an idea for a book that fits this business model, please contact  us via email. We look forward to discussing this opportunity.
