Building Capacity and Community in International Business throughout Oceania

Fast Facts

Welcome to the Academy of International Business – Oceania chapter.

The Academy of International Business is the leading association of scholars and specialists in the field of international business. Established in 1959, the AIB has 3370 members in 94 countries. Members include scholars from leading academic institutions, consultants and practitioners.

The Oceania chapter of AIB incorporates Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Islands. With over 170 members, the chapter facilitates networking, knowledge creation and capacity building at the local level. Our membership transcends the boundaries of single academic disciplines and managerial functions or industries, and seeks to enhance international business research, education, policy and practice.

The main event is the AIB Oceania chapter annual meeting.  Renowned for its informal and collegial character, this event  offers the region’s international business and international management scholars the opportunity to gather as a community, to network, be reinvigorated, and gear up for a productive summer of research.

Past meetings have included a full-day research symposium followed by a professional development workshop.

The research symposium allows authors to present and receive feedback on their early-stage research ideas from peers, prior to working up papers for submission to journals or conferences. The day includes distinguished keynote speakers and panelists. 

The professional development workshop (PDW) varies in format and content each year.  Prior PDW events have focused on different aspects of refining and developing research in preparation for submission to a high-quality journal, with small group  mentoring by established scholars.

Early career researchers and doctoral candidates are especially welcome.
