Welcome to EIBA

EIBA is a professional society for academics and others interested in the multidisciplinary field of International Business (IB) that serves as a community network promoting research, global communication, knowledge transfer, life-long learning and exchanges of ideas. Membership is open to individuals from Europe and elsewhere in the world. EIBA comprises about 500 members from over 50 countries.

EIBA yearly membership benefits include full online access to its associated journal IBR and the PIBR book series volumes (plus journals CR, EBR, IMR, IJoEM). Members may freely post / view employment opportunities on the EIBA Online JobMarket. If you teach, practice, or conduct research in IB – or if you simply wish to be kept informed of the latest developments in this ever-evolving field – EIBA is for you!

EIBA organises an Annual Conference hosted in early to mid-December. Pre-conference activities include the John H. Dunning Doctoral Tutorial, the Danny Van Den Bulcke Doctoral Symposium, the EIBA Early Career Network Workshop, and journal paper / professional development worshops such as the IBR-PDW. Several best paper and other recognition awards are presented during each EIBA Annual Conference. Other events offered throughout the year are local EIBA Workshops on various IB topics. EIBA promotes enhanced community engagement as outlined in its Greening Guidelines and Diversity & Inclusion Guidelines.
