1. What inspired you to become a professor and pursue your research in international business? There are several factors that led me to become a professor of International Business.Firstly, research on the various challenges that face corporations has always been appealing to me. I have always found it fulfilling and challenging to go beyond the common practice or knowledge. In today’s globalized world, many questions about the impact of economic reforms and global trends on the firm’s competitiveness remain unanswered. Being a professor allows me to examine and research causal relationships between a firm’s strategic choices and its impact on performance, whatever that maybe.As for international business, it really is a personal passion and has some roots in my personal background. Having lived in many countries and interacted with people around the world, who may not always share perspectives, has given me a sense of admiration for the many cultural, political, and economic backgrounds that widely differ from one country to the other. Adding numbers to this and assessing the impact of these differences on the firm’s performance makes it a relevant topic in a global world.
