International Business & Entrepreneurship
IBE’s research brings focus to emerging market dynamics and industry 4.0 effects in core research areas of international business and international entrepreneurship with a particular interest in SME and international new venture. This research agenda has been pushed through international positioning and collaboration with other established – primarily Scandinavian – research groups.
The goal of the research group is to contribute to an improved understanding of
- Internationalization of SMEs and new ventures
- Internationalization potentials in relation to novel technologies
- Emerging market dynamics – in particular, internationalization potentials of SMEs and new ventures in relation to novel technologies in this market context
Accordingly, IBE research involves studies into the emergence and growth of firms in diverse international markets and brings insights to the organization of marketing and strategic activities within the firm and through the interplay with other actors.
