More than thirty years have passed since the first study on female entrepreneurship has been published and since then an outpouring of research on the topic has emerged. Interestingly, to date, some pioneering scholars are contributing to moving ahead the field by reframing the established research questions, by proposing possible new research directions, by employing new empirical methods and theoretical approaches or by investigating new contexts. This track aims to encourage the adoption of new perspectives in the study of female entrepreneurship, able to demolish or confirm the established knowledge, as well as to investigate new issues on female entrepreneurship

The topic aims to collect any kind of study that successfully applies and adopt philosophical paradigms to explain, interpret, and impact ethical behaviors in management and business. We are looking for novel or established approaches to create synergies between philosophical studies and managerial disciplines. Both in terms of theoretical paradigms and methods of analysis employed, we are open to a broad range of elements: Virtue Ethics, Consequential and Non-Consequential Ethics, Marxist and Gramsician Ethics, Continental Philosophy, Social and Political Philosophy, CSR, Sustainability and Business Ethics, Corporate Misconduct and Corporate Political Activity, Ethics of Care, Technology, Artificial Intelligence and Business Ethics.

The growing pace of financialisation of the past four decades has led to the acceleration of commodification, stirring the debate in the academia on the purpose and mission of finance for the society and economy. The unfettered financialisation and commodification of the global economy has been at the origin of financial crises and the degradation of the socio-ecological ecosystem. Building on the conference theme ‘Transforming Business for Good’, the track invites conceptual and empirical contributions that highlight the transformative power of ‘Finance for Good’ and its development and use as a vehicle to enhance social impact and transformation.

The international marketing field is transforming rapidly under the influences of digitalization, technological advances, sustainability pressures, geopolitical conflicts and tension, and regulatory restrictions. How do international marketing managers cope with, or even thrive under such challenges? How do consumers respond to these challenges and changes? Succeeding in ever more complex, interconnected and at the same time fragmented consumer markets requires an in-depth understanding of cross-national and cross-cultural similarities/differences, as well as how these similarities/differences affect firms and their customers. This track seeks contributions from both international marketing strategy and consumer behavior sub-fields within international marketing.

The track emphasizes investment and financing choices, financial and corporate reporting, and risk management in multinational firms. Firms utilize various governance approaches and allocate decision-making to maximize organizational value while following financial reporting requirements of various nations. Corporate governance encompasses varying levels of internal and external oversight – board structures, compensation practices, ownership patterns, shareholder activism efforts, and disclosure choices across firms and national markets. We invite contributions on international finance and accounting, sustainable finance, MNE management, and corporate governance practices in an international context. We welcome novel research on the determinants of governance practices such as legal, financial, and political institutions, and their influences on performance outcomes, accounting standards, financial reporting quality, tax planning practices, financial risk management practices, ESG practices, climate risk management, bank lending, capital market development, venture capital development, and mergers and acquisitions.

Strategic decisions and global value chains are exposed to significant macro-economic changes. Mines face the challenge of adjusting their strategies in the post-pandemic recovery period, where the uncertainty in the global business landscape is further agitated by geopolitical tensions. Global value chain disruptions and rising economic nationalism present opportunities and challenges. The ability to manage and harness the complexity of diverse settings across countries is crucial to the success of the global firm. Relevant topics for the track include, but are not limited to, international expansion, cross-border mergers and acquisitions, location strategy, entry mode decisions, outsourcing and offshoring decisions (and their reversal), the management, coordination, and governance of global value chains, as well as the development of mnes’ organizational capabilities and performance.


This track encompasses papers dealing with global talent management, global leadership, cross-cultural management, effective multicultural teams, and cultural diversity which are all vital to the management of human resources within the multinational firm. This track also includes papers dealing with a range of international HR activities from recruitment and selection to training, performance management, compensation, retention as well as leadership development, and managing multicultural teams. It also covers various international organizational behavior topics and such as the positive and negative effects of diversity for individuals, teams, and organizations, and issues related to cross-cultural management and global mobility. In addition, the track includes papers that address grand societal challenges (e.g., global migration and refugees) and the people related and cultural implications for the multinational firm.


Research on non-market strategies, new business models, multi-stakeholder partnerships, collaborations between multinational companies from developed economies and developing markets, climate change adaptation, supply chain disruption, geopolitical competition, food and fertilizers scarcity, New Global Deal, debt, are just a few of the IB challenges that this track is open to exploring. We welcome studies that examine trends in foreign direct investment, internationalization and other strategies, the dynamic capabilities of emerging markets firms. We welcome submissions focused on these firms’ transformations from a culture of incremental innovation to a culture of breakthrough innovation given the rising role of emnes and the born global firms in the growth of developing economies. Papers that examine understudied emerging markets, such as those in Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Central Asia or Latin America and the Caribbean, are especially appreciated.

Sustainability is integral to global economic development and to firms’ international business engagement (i.e., operations, behavior and interaction with stakeholders). International firms are key societal actors and called on to consider and contribute to the sustainable development challenge in their decisions and actions. Thus, sustainable grand challenges such as climate change, biodiversity depletion, poverty or inequality are crucial “Global Disruptions” affecting international business. Multinational enterprises have taken up the challenge, though progress has been slow. This may be partly due to the managerial difficulties of balancing shareholder interests and stakeholder needs, limited commitment to sustainability, and limited resources to address the promise-performance gap.

Knowledge is for many firms one of the most important sources of competitive advantage and managing knowledge globally is becoming more complex in this new phase of globalization. This track addresses how knowledge is created, transferred, assimilated, transformed and used internationally. This can occur through the processes of innovation, learning, research and development (R&D), etc. The track will explore how mnes and internationalizing firms learn, manage knowledge and innovate, and how mnes orchestrate local knowledge globally to gain and sustain competitive advantage on a global scale. Some examples of topics of interest include: Why do global and local networks of innovation interact? How do firms manage cross-national systems of open innovation for the benefit of all partners in a collaborative innovation initiative? Which governance mechanisms are most conducive to knowledge development?

International business is littered with varied aspects of world disruptions, like pandemic, war, money crisis and temperature change. Resilience might not be identical for all parties involved, and reactions to resilience might cause more disruptions to the established orders of geo-economics and geo-politics. This track welcomes submissions associated with resilience of companies, managers, and policy manufacturers to deal with varied aspects of world disruptions. Disruptions vary from the geo-political tensions, shrinking international trade and sales, changes in shopper behavior, international price chain disruption, disruption in international innovation and data sourcing, disruption in human resource quality and employment, and money disruption, among others. This track welcomes submissions that ask for to advance our data regarding the complexness of resilience that's required to retort to all or any varieties of international disruptions.
