CBS is Hosting this year’s EAMSA Conference
The Turning Tide of Globalization: Implications for European-Asian Business Collaboration
Copenhagen Business School is pleased to announce that the 34th Euro-Asia Management Studies Association’s (EAMSA) annual conference will take place at Copenhagen Business School, Denmark, between the 15th and 18th of November 2017.
EAMSA is a platform for scholarly exchange on economic and management issues. Annual conferences, held alternately in Europe and Asia, bring together researchers and business executives who discuss their research and experiences, exchange ideas, and establish collaborative networks.
This year’s conference will focus on the impact of recent globalization countering developments on European-Asian business relations. The background for taking up this theme is that the continuing and deepening integration of European and Asian business witnessed over the past 20-30 years no longer can be taken for granted. Economic developments (e.g. the financial crises and sluggish economic performance in parts of Europe and Asia), political developments (e.g. Brexit, growing protectionism, and stalled trade negotiations) and technological developments (e.g. communication technology and robotics) seem to be challenging the globalization momentum of previous decades. Researchers need to understand how these developments may impact European and Asian companies’ propensity to invest, collaborate and compete across the two regions. Hence, researchers in the areas of international business, organization studies, area studies and management science are encouraged to submit theoretical, conceptual and empirical papers that draw on qualitative, quantitative, mixed and case study approaches to explore, evaluate, critique and debate issues arising from the conference theme.
This year’s conference will host two key-note speakers, Wing Thye Woo, Professor of Economics, University of California (TBC) and Gang Wei, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, CEVT (China-Euro Vehicle Technology AB) (TBC).
The conference is open to all participants. You can register your attendance here.
The conference is organized in collaboration between the CBS Centre of Business & Development Studies (CBDS), the CBS Asia Research Center (ARC) and the CBS Department of Strategic Management and Globalization (SMG)
