APA Dissertation Research Award

The AIB Dissertation Award follows the tradition of Past President, Richard Farmer, of Indiana University, who emphasized a holistic approach to understand the environment of International Business. With new sponsorship starting in 2013 the AIB Dissertation Award now also recognizes the seminal contribution of Mark Casson and Peter J. Buckley for their 1976 pioneering development of internalization theory as an explanation of the Multinational Enterprise (MNE). In subsequent work, Buckley and Casson have applied internalization theory to explain other modes of international business such as international joint ventures, licensing, offshore assembly and the global factory. Thus starting in 2013, the AIB Dissertation Award recognizes the joint importance of the environment of international business and the nature of the MNE. The award is designed to reward superior doctoral dissertations in the field of international business. All finalists receive a travel stipend to allow them to present their research at the AIB annual conference (amount is announced in the call for submissions annually). The winner receives a plaque and an additional scholarship award (amount is announced in the call for submissions annually).

The Doctoral Dissertation Award winner is presented at CSCMP’s Annual Conference.
