International Business

Emphasizes issues facing the multinational enterprise and businesses engaged in dealings across national borders.

About This Research Group

International Business (IB) combines international expertise with the functional areas of General Management, emphasising issues facing the multinational enterprise (MNE) and businesses engaged in dealings across national borders.

Though the common theme of international business unifies IB faculty, they draw on varied disciplinary bases to address issues of joint venturing, alliances, foreign direct investment, and doing business in emerging economies. Leveraging their diversity, the IB group is interested in understanding international business phenomena from a multi-level, multi-disciplinary perspective.

Ivey's IB group ranks among the top 10 IB departments in terms of impact and productivity, and regularly publishes in the field’s top journals, such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Entrepreneurship: Theory & Practice, Journal of Business Venturing, Journal of International Business Studies, Journal of Management Studies, Organization Science, and Strategic Management Journal.
