The International Business and Strategy research division is one of six academic areas within Henley Business School at the University of Reading. It is home to two of the world's premier research centres in international business and international business history.
We continue to help define the research agenda in the fields of international business and international business history. Biennially we hold international conferences at Henley Business School, examining the latest topics and research in these fields. Alongside some of the world's most distinguished academics, we attract leading experts from organisations ranging from MNEs to NGOs.
We are home to the John H. Dunning Centre for International Business and the Centre for International Business History (CIBH), two of the world’s premier research centres in the field.
Research conducted at the John H. Dunning Centre for International Business straddles the fields of international business and strategic management and focuses on critical issues relating to strategies of multinational enterprises, globalisation and international business regulation, and foreign direct investment.
CIBH strives to promote the study of the past development and future evolution of business strategy in an international and comparative content. Business History Review, the Harvard Business School’s journal, lists the centre as one of the most important in the world for business history.
