About the Department of International Business & Innovation and Entrepreneurship (IBIE)

The Department of IBIE, within the College of Business & Law, is an interdisciplinary department, bringing together about 20 full-time scholars of International Business, Entrepreneurship, and innovation along with a strong group of associated researchers and HDR students. This novel grouping gives rise to an environment of creativity and intellectual challenge, enabling connections across research fields. Our interests cohere in a number of areas. IBIE scholars share an interest in understanding and fostering creativity, innovation, and behaviours that impact positively on people, organisations, and their environments.

IBIE is a home to two disciplinary research groups.

  • The Sustainable Global Business Operations and Development research group brings together the researchers across the school and conducts research with a focus primarily on multinational enterprises (MNEs), particularly the theoretical and practical insights of various aspects of foreign direct investment by MNEs into and from emerging countries, and the impact of such MNEs and their sustainable development on host-country business, society, and environment.

  • The Diversity-Accelerated Entrepreneurship & Innovation research group focuses on the activities of groups which bring a unique lens to their entrepreneurial activities (for example, women and migrants). These groups represent a critical opportunity to build on our strengths and develop them further.
