9th IB & Finance Paper Development Workshop

“Advancing Interdisciplinary Perspectives in IB & Finance Research”


Hosted at King’s Business School, London

In collaboration with Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU – Vienna)

September 23rd 2022

Deadline for extended abstracts or full papers: July 15th 2022

The workshop is expected to be held physically but may be converted into a digital format if travel remains restricted because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

For the ninth consecutive year, we invite researchers to join their efforts and creativity in developing papers at the intersection of International Business and Finance. The workshop is designed to connect junior scholars to like-minded peers, and to offer hands-on guidance from senior faculty from the fields. The workshop is co-organized and financially supported by the Department of Global Business and Trade at WU Vienna and King’s Business School (King’s College London).

Aim and Background of the Workshop:

IB researchers increasingly call for further integration of Finance and IB (Agmon, 2006, Cumming, Filatotchev, Knill, Reeb, & Senbet, 2017, Puck & Filatotchev, 2018). The goal of the 9th IB & Finance Paper Development Workshop is to create an interactive forum for both IB/Finance researchers. We also encourage contributions from Strategy, Accounting and Management with international and/or Finance perspectives. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

·     Current topics in managing and financing international business activities (e.g., Brexit, global protectionism, economic disintegration)

·     Governance and international finance (e.g., risk behaviour, agency cost)

·     Institutional context and international finance (e.g., liability of foreignness in capital markets, local financial context, legitimacy, isomorphism)

·     International capital structure and internal capital markets (e.g., diversification, international transfer pricing, arbitrage, taxation)

·     Ownership effects on internationalization (e.g., family ownership, institutional investors, sovereign wealth funds)

·     Financial risk management in internationalization (e.g., hedging, trade finance, risk reporting)

·     International strategic finance (e.g., listing location, location specific financial advantages, project finance, syndication)

·     Firm level issues in financing internationalization (e.g., SMEs, MNEs, EMNEs, born globals, export finance and FDI finance, joint ventures)

·     Integrating IB and Finance theories (e.g., TCE, RBV, OLI, real options, agency and institutional theory).
