This project is distinctive in that it really is a `Who's Who' rather than a directory of all scholars engaged in international business education and research.
It develops a select sample of 150 leading scholars and practitioners extracted from a sample of at least 1200 in the field. The sample is drawn from the use of multiple selection criteria reflecting research productivity, citational analysis, executive officers and fellows of the AIB, management of US-based CIBERS and peer-based nominations. These indicators highlight contributions that expand the frontiers of research and also recognize contributions to professional and institutional development. The compilation is also distinctive in that it allows respondents to offer a personal statement on the principal contributions they have made to the field of international business.
The main listing in the book is alphabetic by name and the information is indexed for ease of reference. The volume serves as a central reference in the field of international business, and is an indispensable guide to academic, government and business communities.
