The annual meeting of the Academy of International Business (AIB) will be held July 5-9 at the InterContinental Miami hotel, with FIU Business as the host institution.
The theme of the conference is “Beyond Diversity and Inclusion: Equity and Justice in International Trade”.
“FIU Business is deeply honored to be the host institution of the world’s most renowned annual conference in international business,” said William Hardin, Dean of FIU Business. “This honor reflects our reputation as a world leader in international business education and research and Miami’s reputation as a global business center.”
At the conference, researchers will present unpublished results on a wide range of international business topics submitted in 14 research areas that were accepted through a competitive blind peer review process. Panels are also presented, covering both topics related to the theme of the conference and any aspect of international trade.
Widely recognized as the premier conference in the field of international business, the AIB Annual Meeting is held each year at a different location around the world. Most participants, who must be AIB members, are academics from leading global academic institutions as well as consultants, researchers, and government and NGO representatives. This year’s conference is expected to attract over 700 in-person attendees. Approximately 250 additional participants will present their research online in an associated virtual conference component.
Topics discussed at the meeting include diversity, equity and inclusion in international business; the future of research methods in international trade; and migration in international affairs. During the four-day conference, 19 FIU Business faculty members will present their research and participate in various panels.
The AIB is the world’s oldest and largest not-for-profit professional association of scholars from diverse disciplines who have common research and teaching interests in topics with international implications.
