Conference/Symposium Theme

Internationalization and Economic Crisis: Challenges and Opportunities

Both domestic and global arenas are suffering more and more the effects of a period of uncertainty and of the crises, particularly the recent ones, namely the Asian, Argentinian, Russian, 9/11, subprime mortgage, Eurozone, and, more recently yet, Brazilian crisis. The uncertainty feeling during those periods impels firms to adopt measures in an attempt to deal with crisis consequences and, eventually, survive it. One of the strategies firms use to reduce uncertainty is to adopt geographical diversification towards international markets instead of only targeting the domestic market. It allows firms to dilute the risks among several international activities being especially useful when facing critical economic situations in a given market. However, there are many challenges related to the complexity of such diverse business environments, cultures, and institutions. The internationalization process involves aspects related to marketing, strategy, innovation, firm-government relations, and management education and research. During the period of economic crisis, firms should consider those aspects in order to leverage and obtain advantages and capabilities to compete in the global arena. Addressing that scope, ESPM will promote the 11th ESPM International Management Conference and 11th International Symposium of Management and Marketing aiming at: understanding the academic contributions—Brazilian and international researchers — that are strengthening the ​​international business field; disseminating the findings and encouraging new empirical research on issues that are more likely to show fast progress; discussing the validity of theories formulated in other contexts; and proposing new theoretical frameworks and models. The event also seeks to align the academic findings to the practitioners who are engaged in international business and have particular interest in the political and business environments in Brazil.
