The University of Texas at Dallas Center for Global Business (CGB) and partners — Cornell University Emerging Markets Institute (EMI), Northeastern University Center for Emerging Markets (CEM) and the University of Miami Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) — are pleased to announce the fourth annual Global Strategy and Emerging Markets (GSEM) Conference. Previous GSEM conferences have been held in Miami (2016), Boston (2017) and Miami (2018). This conference provides a platform to bring together like-minded senior and junior scholars, doctoral students, and practitioners in the fields of international business, strategic management, cross-cultural management, technology strategy and global entrepreneurship from around the world, with an interest on global strategy and emerging markets.
The theme this year is “Institutional Complexities and Strategic Responses in the New Global Economy.” The new global economy is at a crossroads. Forces of “de-globalization” are endeavoring to slow down globalization. Advances of technologies are penetrating more aspects of human life. Engines of economic growth are readjusting to the “new normal.” Overall, institutions as “the rules of the game” can no longer be viewed as static and invisible. Instead, a series of the rules of the game — ranging from national and international politics to technological standards and competition policies — are changing, and their complexities are increasing. Such institutional transitions are forcing managers and entrepreneurs to search for new, innovative strategies.
We welcome papers that analyze the interaction between global strategy and emerging markets, and especially those that focus on the theme of the conference: how firms led by managers and entrepreneurs eager to grow strategically respond to a new global economy with such heightened institutional complexities.
