The Intercultural and international perspectives on management (IIPM) research theme group was established in 2012 to provide a supportive environment in which to nurture and promote international and comparative research across the School of Business and Management. The creation of this group reflects long-standing, rich empirically based intellectual strengths in these topic areas within the School.
The group brings together an interdisciplinary collection of staff and doctoral students. Group members possess interests and expertise in international business, human resource management, organisation studies, strategy, entrepreneurship, accounting, marketing, and technology and information management. In terms of region, our activities have highlighted research conducted in locations as diverse as Germany, India, China, Turkey, Japan, post-Soviet countries, Africa, Malaysia, the United Kingdom, Taiwan and Bulgaria.
Major research strengths and interests
- Business and management in emerging/transitional economies
