SnO Summer School: Medici V Edition on Internationalization Strategies: Old Questions, New Contexts

  • When: 09/06/2013 - 14/06/2013
  • Where: Florence, Italy

The 5th edition of the Medici Summer School in Management Studies for doctoral students andyoung researchers was helded in Florence. The summer school is organized and sponsored by Alma GS (University of Bologna), HEC Paris (Society and Organizations Research Center and the HEC Foundation), and Stern School of Business (New York University).

The school welcomed 25 doctoral students from European, North American and Middle Eastern universities (e.g. HEC, Bologna, CBS, Aalto, Manchester, ESADE, Wharton, Illinois, Ivey, Hebrew, etc). The program included discussions on the current state of research on internationalization and the advantages it may accrue to firms. It also covered the directions for future research related not only to new phenomena, but also new settings and theoretical frameworks useful to understand internationalization.

Keeping on with the School’s tradition of analyzing managerial phenomena from different levels of analysis, internationalization was looked upon first from the firm perspective, then from the organizational network perspective, and finally with a discussion on the increasingly prominent role context, comprising civil society and governments, plays in shaping firms’ decisions. The sessions were held by five prominent scholars in Strategy and International Management: Stephen Tallman, Torben Pedersen, Xavier Martin, Tatiana Kostova and Sinziana Dorobantu. Common issues raised all through the week were related to the need for stronger theoretical development in research on internationalization, including the use of the most updated developments in theories borrowed from other fields, such as economics, sociology and political science.
