A Dozen Temple Faculty Present at Academy of International Business (AIB)

The Fox School of Business will be well represented at the 2013 annual meeting of the Academy of International Business (AIB), with more than a dozen faculty and PhD students presenting research or leading panels at the five-day conference of the world’s leading association of international business scholars and specialists.


The Fox School’s involvement at the meeting, in Istanbul, Turkey, starts July 3 with a pre-conference workshop, the Mid-Career Consortium, which is sponsored by Temple University and will feature Strategic Management Professor and AIB Fellow Ram Mudambi.


“This level of participation in one of the world’s major business conferences reflects the Fox School’s status as one of the global leaders in international business,” said Mudambi, who also serves as executive director of the Temple Center for International Business, Education and Research (CIBER), based at the Fox School.
