Elected 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.
