Week #1: Peter Buckley and John Cantwell
Please join us in the "Frontline IB: Conversations with IB Scholars" series. This is a video series with prominent international business scholars where we showcase them as a person, as a thought leader and researcher, and finally, as a mentor.
Most of us read and extensively cite these top IB scholars. Their groundbreaking and seminal papers inspire us, and yet, many of us rarely get to know the "person" behind the scholarly accomplishments. These esteemed colleagues generously share with us how different facets of their lives have influenced their academic work. The recordings are not about particular papers or specific empirical methods. Each researcher has unique perspectives yet exhibit a shared ethos that centers on finding and solving substantive puzzles in IB. These semi-structured interviews are in three parts. First, the guests talk about their journey on how they got into the profession, what else they could or would have pursued, their passions, interests, etc. Second, the scholars talk about promising IB topics, under-explored, not-well-understood, and over-emphasized topics. Third, the scholars share the best advice they received, their advice to young scholars on what to do and what not to do for a successful career. There is much value in learning from their experiences and hindsight. Each session is practically a 'masterclass' with a top mind in our field. We hope these dynamic segments will keep on inspiring generations of scholars. The recordings are housed in AIB's video library, and public access is made possible by courtesy of AIB.
Looking forward to sharing many great interviews with you.
