In the world of academia, in which the rule ‘publish or perish’ seem to prevail, teaching frequently remains in the backstage. In this webinar, we discuss with senior scholars who managed to pursue remarkable careers as International Business (IB) researchers, educators, and institution builders. Moreover, the seniority of this panel participants did not prevent them from staying relevant and interesting for their always-young audience in the volatile and disruptively transforming global environment.

Welcome to join us on June 9th, 2022 at 11 am EST, to explore self-development practices for sustainable career as an IB educator.

• How to select interesting cases and materials when generation differences are increasing?
• How to avoid losing credibility in the eyes of tech-generation when approaching seniority?
