Elected as AIB Fellow

Announces the news of my election as AIB Fellow

In March I received the happy news that I was elected as Fellow of the Academy of International Business. The AIB Fellows consist of a select group of distinguished AIB members who are recognized for their outstanding contributions to the scholarly development of the field of international business or have made significant contributions to the AIB.

My fellow "electees" this year (Sea-Jin Chang, Sarianna Lundan, Rebecca Piekkari, Bodo Schlegelmilch, Eric Tsang, and Peter Williamson) are all "international" and three out the seven new Fellows are women. It is good to see that after the JIBS editorial board [see Gender and geographical diversity in the JIBS editorial board: an update] even the group of AIB Fellows is getting more and more diverse.

Inducted as AIB Fellow

Given that I could not attended the 2018 AIB conference I was officially "inducted" at the 2019 Copenhagen conference during the traditional Fellow's dinner. It was a great honour to be there together with my nominator Jean Boddewyn and my seconder Rosalie Tung.

The official photographer also managed to get most of the participating fellows on the picture that same day, but clearly needed a very wide lens! I am third from the left on the second row.
