Our International Business research "by academic affiliation" leads globally according to recent study
According to the article ‘W(h)ither U.S. Hegemony in International Business Research?’, Leeds is placed no.1 in the world for IB research, based on academic affiliation for the period 2006 – 2020.
The 2023 research titled ‘W(h)ither U.S. Hegemony in International Business Research?’ by Grigorios Livanis and Michael Geringer is published by the Thunderbird International Business Review and explores the spread of international business expertise across the globe.
The study provides a unique, in-depth, time-series analysis of the evolution of IB research, including an examination of strategies and performance over time by non-US institutions to break through the dominance of US institutions and produce high rankings in the publication of IB research.
