Strategy, International Management & Entrepreneurship
The research of the group focuses on developing theory, methods, and knowledge to advance our understanding of business and entrepreneurial activity in an international institutional context.
Research comprises three core themes:
- international business, and comparative business and management,
- global strategies for sustainability and corporate social responsibility, and
- knowledge-intensive firms, innovation, and appropriability
The first theme focuses on strategy formulation based on digital technologies, the changing organization of multinationals, and frameworks of comparative corporate governance.
The second focuses on transnational governance strategies in global supply chains, such as in the context of modern slavery and human rights. A related body of work investigates social entrepreneurship as a source of sustainable innovation, inclusive growth, and societal wellbeing, and the strategies towards corporate social responsibility and legitimacy in the digital economy.
The third comprises research on knowledge-intensive business service firms, their innovation collaboration and appropriability strategies, as well as their forms of organisational learning. A related stream of work explores how firms obtain competitive advantage by acquiring technology and brands, and by drawing significantly on creativity for their innovation.
Group members currently hold editorial posts in a variety of highly-ranked academic journals, and have won a number or research-related awards. The group has a strong commitment to developing research impact through their links with relevant policymakers and practitioners. Also, the members of the group have built extensive research networks through international collaborations and exchange programs.
The SIME group of King’s Business School organise bi-weekly research seminars that attract speakers from around the world. These usually take place on Wednesdays in Bush House on the Strand.
