45th AIB (UK&I) Conference 2018 - International Business Strategies in a Changing Commercial and Political Landscape

12 - 14 April, 2018 Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham


Deadline for paper submissions: 26 January Submission of papers to both the Main Conference and Doctoral Colloquium is managed through Conftool Pro.


Where are we now? This is the question that academics and practitioners are presently asking themselves as the contemporary world appears to be a confusing picture, for both multinational corporations (MNCs) and their managers - not only due to a highly competitive economic environment, but also due to an uncertain and turbulent political environment.


With the developed West witnessing signs of fragmentation; as the United Kingdom prepares to leave the European Union; as the United States of America begins to forge a new place for itself in the world, and as South Korea and Hong Kong face political turbulence caused by forces that appear to be beyond their control; the environments MNCs presently inhabit pose a number of significant challenges.


Therefore, if you are interested in starting to figure out where international business is now and where it is heading, then we warmly invite you to join us at the 45th AIB-UK&I conference held at The Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham (UK) from Thursday 12th to Saturday 14th April 2018.


The UK & Ireland Chapter (UK&I) of the Academy of International Business (AIB) is the leading association of scholars and specialists in the field of international business in the UK and Ireland.
