The Discipline of International Business at the University of Sydney Business School and the School of Management at University of New South Wales (UNSW) are pleased to invite IB scholars worldwide to present their research at the Annual Conference of the Australia and New Zealand International Business Academy (ANZIBA).

The theme of the conference is “Contextualizing Theory in IB”. While the importance of context has been recognized widely in international business research, incorporating it explicitly for theory building is in its infancy. This conference encourages scholars to share their novel ideas pertaining to theory building through incorporating context in research.

The conference features a one-day Doctoral Colloquium on Wednesday, 17 February, hosted at UNSW.  This is followed that same evening by a welcoming reception for all conference attendees, and then two days of concurrent presentation sessions on the 18-19 February, hosted at the  the University of Sydney Business School’s CBD campus, 133 Castlereagh St.
