Faculty & Research
Today, all business is international business. The International Business Area focuses on understanding how employees, managers and organizations can thrive in an increasingly complex and dynamic global business environment. Our faculty members' research revolves around two main themes. The first is strategic management of firms that transact business across international boundaries, with special emphasis on international alliance performance and technology transfer and a significant focus on the Asia-Pacific region. The second theme has to do with managing individuals in organizations that transact business across borders. This includes topics such as global mobility, career management, development of intercultural competencies, and managing work interactions in multicultural settings. Other areas of interest and expertise include the development of intercultural competence, cross-cultural leader-member interactions, the management of multicultural groups and teams, and cross-border risk management.
