Henley Business School academics Professor Davide Castellani and Dr Irina Surdu from the Department of International Business & Strategy, were among the award winners at the 46th Academy of International Business (AIB) UK & Ireland Chapter Conference.

The AIB aims to promote teaching and research in the area of international business and acts as a forum for the development and exchange of views among scholars and specialists. This year’s conference focused on multinational enterprises and their non-market social and political strategies.

Professor Castellani won the Global Strategy Journal Best Paper Award for the paper ‘Connectivity and the location of MNEs across the value chain: Evidence from US metropolitan areas, which was co-authored with Katiuscia Lavoratori, Vittoria Scalera and Allessandra Perri.

Dr Surdu won the Peter J Buckley and Pervez N Ghauri prize for the Best Conference Paper by an Early Career Researcher for ‘No victory without defeat? How foreign market re-entrants manage risk trade-offs following exit’. Co-authored with Edith Ipsmiller, the paper examined how 1,020 re-entrants to foreign markets had approached the trade-offs among various sources of risk and the tools employed to manage them.

The conference took place at the University of Sussex on 26-27 April.
