Interdisciplinary research plays a significant role in the international business (IB) and international management (IM) field. In the contemporary dynamic business environment, research with single disciplinary lens to question, reflect or resolve problems in international business management practices is often limited and only sensitive to a limited range of factors. In particular, the recent emerging paradigms, such as dynamics, aesthetics, and process in IB and IM areas call for a move beyond single disciplinary perspective which may not be sufficient to explore these topics in depth. Therefore, the value to IB and IM studies of interdisciplinary research for advancing theoretical development is of particular contemporary importance.
Interdisciplinary research is strongly encouraged by many funding bodies, internationally rated journals and UK impact research committee and policy-makers. The central focus of the event was to address the pressing needs for and issues of interdisciplinary research in IB/IM field in terms of journal publications, grant applications, research development and engagement activities.
