Examines the current thinking on the importance of international business for institutional structuring and business education
In International Business: Institutions and the Dissemination of Knowledge, editors Brian Toyne and Douglas Nigh collect essays written by twenty-four leading international business scholars and highly successful administrators. Representing both United States and foreign institutions, the contributors explore the unique research and educational issues and challenges confronting both faculty and administration as a consequence of the emerging importance of international business.
Opening chapters discuss a holistic paradigm of international business and its implications for research and education. The book is then sub-divided into five sections which address the history of international business as a field of inquiry and education, the advantages and disadvantages of the current structuring of institutions for international business research, the pros and cons of the current structuring of institutions for international business education, and the implications for international business as a field of research and education. Included in this examination are suggestions for modifying institutional arrangements and incentives to encourage the field's advancement.
International Business: Institutions and the Dissemination of Knowledge will appeal to any scholar, administrator, or public policymaker interested in understanding the complexities associated with international business research and education from an institutional perspective.
