School Brings Together Leaders in Strategy Management as Part of National Conference
January 16, 2012
Top scholars and pioneers in strategy management gathered at the University of Miami in November as part of an extension to the Strategic Management Society’s (SMS) 31st annual conference. The School’s management professors, Yadong Luo, holder of the Emery M. Findley, Jr. Distinguished Chair; Haresh Guarnani, the Leslie O Barnes Scholar and chair of the department; and Joseph Ganitsky, director of the UM Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER), organized the workshop.
Entitled “Co-opetition, Co-evolution and Global Strategy,” the workshop presented conference participants the opportunity to engage in discussions and share ideas in an intimate setting. Leading scholars from across the country including Luo and John Daniels, another of the School’s management professors, discussed the evolution of global strategy. Extension workshops were also held at Florida International University’s Miami campus, the University of Florida’s Sunrise campus, and Florida Atlantic University’s Boca Raton campus.
“We try to capitalize on having world-renowned scholars in Miami by creating platforms for them to share their latest research, findings and results,” said Luo, who believes such conferences are helping to position the School as a leader in the field.
Other University of Miami workshop panelists included Mike Hitt of Texas A&M University, Marjorie Lyles of Indiana University, Oded Shenkar of Ohio State University, Yan (Anthea) Zhang of Rice University, and Jeff Reuer of Purdue University.
