In collaboration with the Academy of International Business Research Methodologies Special Interest Group (RM-SIG), the Department of Strategy and International Business at Birmingham Business School is hosting its Annual Strategy and International Business Symposium (ASIBS) on Thursday 19 October 2017.

The aim of the event is to advance the understanding of various emerging topics within the international business and strategy as well as the quality and diversity of research methodologies applied within those areas. By doing so, it is hoped that the event will help and guide both PhD students and junior academics with their process of planning and undertaking innovative and rigorous research in order to advance knowledge as well as enhance professional standards in those fields.
