The domain of international management

Author

  • Boddewyn, Jean J.

Abstract

Recent domain statements by the International Management Division of the Academy of Management and by the Editors of this journal are critiqued in terms of contents as well as of their lack of definitions of the key terms "international" and "management" and of an analysis of the latter's interaction. This article emphasizes traditional interpretations of these terms as a starting point for further discussions of international management scholarship whose boundaries are bound to expand and change even though consensus about the International Management field is unlikely in the near future.
