250 delegates arrive at the Business School for the AIB Conference

The Academy of International Business (AIB) is the world’s principle academic body interested in International Business and International Management. Their annual conference takes place in Edinburgh on the 15 and 16 April. The theme is International Business: New challenges, new forms, new practices.

Dr. Simon Harris from the Business School is chairing the 38th annual conference this Friday and Saturday.

This year, the conference is bridging both the academic and business worlds with attendees from both communities, and by hosting 'keynote interviews' whereby leading scholars interview business leaders about particular aspects of international business. 

Professor Tamer Cavusgil of Georgia State University and Professor Pervez Ghauri of Kings College, University of London will be speaking at the conference. Both have not only achieved outstanding scholarship within their fields of International Business, but have worked at the leading edge of the interface between the discipline and management practice.
