We are pleased to announce the Alan Rugman Fellow for the 2019-20 academic year, hosted by the John H. Dunning Centre for International Business at the Henley Business School, University of Reading.
This year’s fellowship has been awarded to María Jesús Nieto, who is
Professor of Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship at Carlos III University of Madrid, Spain. She is the Director of the Master’s programme in Entrepreneurship and the Deputy Director of the Entrepreneurship and Family Firms Institute at this University.
Her research interests include internationalisation, innovation management, entrepreneurship and family businesses, and their intersections. Her works have been published in refereed journals such as
Strategic Management Journal, Journal of International Business Studies,
Journal of World Business, Global Strategy Journal, Research Policy,
Family Business Review and International Business Review, among many others. She has also contributed to specialised books and collective works on international business. For more details of her publications and research, see
The visiting fellowship programme is aimed at creating opportunities for researchers at the early-to-mid stages of their career to visit and collaborate with academics at the Centre, and to utilise resources associated with the John H.
Dunning Library. Dunning Fellows are expected to be actively engaged in the field of international business (broadly defined), and with an inclination towards multi-disciplinary and theory-driven research, in the tradition of John Dunning. Visiting fellows
are expected to give at least one seminar, and to spend between 2 and 4 weeks in residence over an academic year (between September and June).
The Alan Rugman Visiting Fellowship was established in 2015. This is an annual award which honours the work of the late Professor Alan Rugman, and is therefore available to scholars whose work is explicitly linked to topics aligned with
his academic interests. The award is in part available thanks to a donation from Helen Rugman in memory to her late husband.

http://www.henley.ac.uk/school/page/ibs-fellowships/ Visiting fellows are expected to give at least one seminar, and to spend between 2 and 4 weeks in residence over an academic year (between September and June), and are seeking to develop joint
research with our faculty. Applicants must be actively engaged in research. Unlike the Dunning Fellowship programme, we do not restrict applications to early- and mid-career, and applicants at any stage of their career may apply. However, we have a preference
for those at an earlier stage of their career. I am sure you will join with me in congratulating Maria.
