Supervision

PhD supervision - Broad themes and opportunities

Rudolf welcomes PhD applications that fall within the broader research themes listed below.

  • Rising powers and declining powers: How does the economic dynamism in emerging countries, in particular China, India and Brasil, transform the contours of the global economy and with what consequences? How does the rise/demise of lead firms from these contexts challenge IB theory and point at potentially different patterns of growth? What are the economic and social outcomes of these transformation processes?
  • Global value chains and international business: Global Value Chains (GVCs) have exploded in the past decade and refer to the international dispersion of design, production, assembly, marketing and distribution of services, activities, and products. Analytically, frameworks for GVC analysis have been developed outside the IB field and only recently recognition has developed to build on these frameworks and combine these with IB thinking. What are the consequences for firms (especially smaller firms) to engage and work within GVCs, what are the opportunities to engage and generate both economic and social value? What are the antecedents and consequences of insertion into GVCs and governance dynamics for cross-border collaboration? What about economic and social upgrading?
  • Business strategies and capability development: Business strategies, capabilities and structures vary and change within and across different countries and institutional contexts. Emerging market firms are frequently challenging conventional thinking about innovation and economic development (reverse innovation, catch-up strategies). What are the implications for development of business strategies and capability development?
  • Information and communication technologies, Industry 4.0, platform technologies and international business: ICTs, platforms and recent disruptive technologies have tremendous impacts on inter-firm partnerships, the facilitation of relational exchange and the geographical organization of international business activities. However, the impacts are not uniquely positive (e.g. “virtuality trap”), context dependent and consequences on distributional outcomes (impacts on labour, profit-capture and rents) are not fully understood. New technologies allow for new governance modes, disrupt innovation (e.g. crowdsourcing, open innovation, open access in scholarship, etc.) and impact on the competitiveness of specific sectors.
