Abstract

Based on fifteen years of data on the annual Academy of International Business (AIB) best dissertation Farmer Award finalists, we find that these dissertations were done at a range of North American universities. Interestingly, dissertation topics differed from the topics covered in the three top IB journals with five‐sixths of the topics in management, organization, economics, or finance and two‐thirds set in a single country or region (U.S., Japan, North America, and Western Europe). Survey research is the most common methodology but analysis of secondary data is growing. As expected, the finalists are on average an extraordinarily prolific group.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this article is to present a biographical sketch of Lee C. Nehrt, who, in 1962, became the first person to obtain a PhD in International Business.

Design/methodology/approach

This study is mainly based on an in‐depth interview of Lee Nehrt followed up by several telephone and e‐mail interviews as well as e‐mail interviews of a number of Nehrt's former colleagues and students. In addition, Nehrt's published works were extensively reviewed and utilized.

Findings

The findings are reported in the form of a biography. In particular, the paper documents Nehrt's contribution to the emergence of international business as an important field of study, his role in internationalizing business curricula within the USA and in popularizing the American model of business education across the world. The paper also reflects on Nehrt's contribution to the Academy of International Business and his efforts in forging closer ties between international business academics and practitioners.

Originality/value

The dearth of biographical research in the international business discipline points to a need that has yet to be fulfilled. This is the first published article on Nehrt's life and career as a pioneering international business scholar.

Abstract

This paper identifies sweeping transformations taking place in the contemporary IB environment and discusses their impact on IB education. We focus on two overarching trends: (1) the demise of the nation-state as the relevant unit around which IB activity is organized and conducted; and (2) the demise of the stand-alone firm, with a hierarchic distribution of power and control, as the principal unit of business competition. We then discuss the range of new skills business managers will need to operate successfully in this new environment, emphasizing the need for cross-cultural awareness, entrepreneurial skills, and networking capabilities.

Abstract

Highlights the opinion that the importance of national culture in cross‐cultural management is diminishing, suggesting that the world is moving towards a single, global management culture that is basically Western and, more specifically, American. Attempts to test this hypothesis by examining values held by future managers from five different cultures. Uses the Kruskal‐Wallis One Way ANOVA and the Mann‐Whitney tests to show that future managers from different cultural backgrounds will neigher adopt a mirror image of current management style in their cultures nor a global unified management style regardless of local culture.

Abstract

Although the Eurobond market has been reasonably welldeveloped for almost two decades, only recently has there been a proliferation of equity‐linked Eurobonds, as issuers have attempted to respond to historically high Eurobond interest rates and the opportunities to reduce the nominal yield of issues by providing for conversion of the bond or by attaching warrants for purchase of the stock of the issuer. From 1979 to 1983, some twenty‐three corporate issuers have attached warrants for stock purchase to Eurobond issues which were denominated in a currency different from that of the jurisdictional headquarters of the parent; twenty‐one issues were denominated in dollars, one (Jusco) in German marks, and one (Schering AG) in sterling. By nationality, nine issues were made by German firms, all of which are industrial leaders or major banks; seven issuers were Japanese; three, British; two, Swiss (both banks); and two Canadian (both Seagrams Co.).
