***In collaboration with AIB worldwide a decision has been taken to postpone the 2-4 April Academy of International Business UK & Ireland Conference 2020. The health and safety of delegates is of the utmost importance.

The University of Glasgow offices are currently closed due to the ongoing Covid 19 crisis. Please note, refunds cannot be processed until university staff have physically returned to the office.

Once the offices have reopened, we will contact delegates who wish a refund. Your patience and understanding is much appreciated.

We are working to confirm a new set of dates for the conference and when these are confirmed we will email registered delegates. Please check AIB-UK Conference for updates.

The registration fee for colleagues who have already registered will transfer to the new dates. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.***

The economic and political landscape around us is changing rapidly. We have entered an era of persistent contradictions with societal and economic changes leading to major disruptions/turbulences across the globe.  These pressures and changes are putting great pressure on SMEs and MNEs and their ability to internationalise and sustain their competitive advantage. Existing strategies and business models used by decision makers may seem insufficient or the least to say, are not equipped to handle these fast-paced changes. International Business and Entrepreneurship [IBE] as a field, may need to reinvent itself, to accommodate for these changes and challenges into existing theories and paradigms. At the AIBUKI conference in Glasgow, we aim to tackle and debate these issues.

By bringing together scholars from different parts of the world and researchers who conduct research in different regions/countries together, we hope that this will provide important refinement and reinvention of new ideas and perspectives that will enrich and enhance the IBE field.
