Dr Andrew Smith PhD

Senior Lecturer in International Business Strategy, IB and Entrepreneurship


Personal Statement

I teach about international business and organizational change. My core research interests centre on the evolution of business and financial institutions, the development of international business, corporate governance, and political economy. My preferred research methods are qualitative and include the use of corporate archives.

I am a member of the Academy of Management, the European Group for Organizational Studies, the Business History Conference, and the Association of Business Historians.

I believe that academics in management schools should work closely with private companies and I would welcome the opportunity to collaborate with firms of various sizes. I also welcome the opportunity to work with law firms and have acted as an expert witness in the past.

I welcome enquiries from prospective doctoral students interested in researching business history, international political economy, and the evolution of global economic institutions. Feel free to email me.
