IIB's research focus covers a wide range of facets and topics relevant in the field of international business, as for example the role of regional headquarters, internationalization processes in Central and Eastern Europe, international finance in foreign trade, headquarter contributions or people-related research within and across cultures. Publications in international top-tier journals and numerous research awards to our faculty certify the high research quality the institute is constantly striving for. Our faculty also received major awards for teaching, including best course and/or lecturer wards in the CEMS Alliance and major MBA programs.  In addition, a multitude of projects and co-operations with companies proof the trust and support IIB enjoys from practitioners and managers.
