This International Business in the Information and Digital Age 13th volume (ePub/PDF) is dedicated to Lorraine Eden for her lifetime contributions to International Business (IB) scholarship. Her research, spanning several decades, has addressed many interdisciplinary and societal themes at the heart of the IB field. The story of her intellectual journey — strongly influenced by the coming of age of the 4th industrial revolution — is shared in the opening chapter of this 13th volume.

This thirteenth volume in the PIBR series covers an increasingly important area of research for IB scholars: the role of multinational enterprises (MNEs) in the digital and information age. A limited number of MNEs now dominate the landscape of the digital age, but almost all internationally operating firms are being affected by prevailing trends. How to develop resilient international business models? How to take stock of these trends? How to regulate? The digital age presents new opportunities but also major challenges for established and emerging MNEs alike.

This volume brings together papers from leading IB scholars and from academics in adjacent disciplines such as economic geography, international relations and political science, strategic management, and technology studies.

Four dimensions of the information and digital age are analyzed using an IB angle:

    • Industry 4.0
    • Trends and theories in the information age
    • Functional strategies in the information age
    • Entrepreneurial strategies in the information age
