2020 Annual Conference


March 25-27, 2020

The historic Palmer House Hilton - Chicago, Illinois

-with special attention to-

“The Future of Globalization”


The U.S. Midwest Chapter of the Academy of International Business (AIB), the world’s leading association of international business scholars, will hold its Annual Conference in 2020 in Chicago in conjunction with the 55th annual meeting of its affiliated organization, MBAA International.


AIB provides a platform for academicians, researchers, industry experts, and students to present their quality research in all fields related to international business.  This year’s conference is themed for the international business challenges of today.


“International business is currently passing through a period of unprecedented, radical change. Global connectivity and the relatively free movement of almost everything--ideas, goods, people, money--all are now being challenged.  Long-settled methods of conducting cross-border business are certain to change. But how?  International business, of course, will go on, and it is up to the international business academy to study the drivers of change and shine a light into the future.  Come to our Conference and be a part of this vitally important conversation.
