    Conference Theme

    The Impact of Technology and Social Networks on Global Connectedness


    AIB-SE announces its 2023 annual conference with the theme: The Impact of Technology and Social Networks on Global ConnectednessConnectedness is a state of being joined or linked "socially, emotionally, spiritually, or professionally with others" ( Heuristically, effective social networks should positively influence connectedness across the globe. Unfortunately, over the past two years, there has been an increase in governmental restrictions blocking the flow of digital information, international travel and tourism have been slow to recover to pre-pandemic rates, and the rising trend of nationalism continues to threaten the flow of trade and capital. How can technology, a primary driver of global connectedness, accelerate international trade and protect privacy? Advances in technology may revolutionize global business yet increase inequality, whereby connectedness is decreased. We acknowledge the DHL Global Connectedness Index as a measure of year over year change and call on researchers to provide more nuanced antecedents and outcomes of being linked or joined through this years' conference tracks.


    This year's conference takes place in Midtown Atlanta and Buckhead, a business district within the city of Atlanta, GA.  The conference is co-hosted by both Georgia State University's Robinson College of Business, CIBER and Georgia Institute of Technology's Scheller College of Business, CIBER.

    Teaching International Business: An Interactive Workshop
    The practice of international business continues to evolve in the current environment of mega disruptions and uncertainty. In the meantime, new instructional technologies are being added to the instructor's toolbox. For international business educators, the changing environment of cross-border business implies new and novel approaches to educating the next generation of business leaders.  Among other things, business educators need to reflect such new realities as: risk management, trade conflicts, increased polarization, and a new world order. Our cadre of master teachers are constantly engaged in course development and revision, developing new teaching resources and pedagogy, and innovating new approaches to engage our students, provide experiential opportunities, and equip them with work-ready skills and competencies. Join us for a conversation where we will share our experiences and tools for teaching international business.

Dr. Liu will also provide detailed suggestions on how to apply a new theory to examine interesting phenomena and testing the theory's basic notions based on his conceptual and empirical articles (e.g., Liu, Fisher, & Chen, 2018; Jiang, Yin, & Liu, 2019; Chen, Liu, Tang, & Hogan, 2021; Liu, Chen, & Li, 2021 ).
