These events aim to provide the students with the opportunity to discuss their research with distinguished international faculty, and to enable the students to become acquainted with an international network of researchers in international business. Students participating in one of these events are also expected to register for the EIBA conference.
• The 27th John H. Dunning Doctoral Tutorial in International Business.
