What Now? International Business in a Confused World Order
University of Leeds
13th – 15th December 2019
We will have 4 Paper Development Workshops, 2 Doctoral Workshops and a Junior Faculty Consortium on 13 December. These have their own submission processes and deadlines. Check the Program Page for details!
The conference registration system is now open. Go to the registration page to get information about the registration options for participants, exhibitors and guests as well as an overview of the pre- and post-conference tours, events and workshops. Remember to first read the “How to Register” document, as we are using a single system for all activities and participants. If you require a visa letter this can be requested via the registration page. You cannot get a visa letter without first registering for the conference (we can supply a separate ‘acceptance’ letter to use for funding purposes and this can be requested via email).
Get your hotel reservations soon, as we expect our reserved spaces to fill up quickly. Leeds in December is very busy and there is a lot of demand for hotel space. You can book your hotel via the “Practical Information” page on this website which has details of hotels with specific deals and blocks of rooms for EIBA 2019 participants.
The 2019 EIBA conference will be an opportunity to look at broadening the impact and footprint of international business through integration with research in other social sciences, to investigate the lessons to be learned from the current turbulent environment. The fact that the conference will be in the UK just before the country’s technical exit from the EU presents a unique opportunity to hold this discussion in an environment currently living through one version of that turbulence.
The conference theme will be operationalized via a collection of tracks that cover traditional topics in international business and a parallel set of specialized tracks that relate to how we can integrate new ideas from the social sciences, policy, and business.
