The Academy of International Business Sustainability Shared Interest Group is going to hold a Career Development Workshop “Academic Careers in Sustainability” at AIB UK and Ireland Chapter 2023 conference.

Pursuing an academic career in sustainability, especially paired with international business, remains challenging since the domain itself is still in its infancy. However, universities, business schools, and other stakeholders are changing and embracing this paradigm shift. Given that sustainability is a wide and emerging field, PhD students may wonder how to build a “sustainable career,” given the interdisciplinary nature of the field, its normative diversity, and rapid development. In our roundtable, PhD students, early-career scholars and more-experienced scholars gather to discuss opportunities and challenges, and exchange tips and experiences, regarding their career paths and development.

Chair: Dr. Shasha Zhao, Associate Professor/Senior Lecturer in International Business and Innovation, University of Surrey, Co-Chair of AIB Sustainability SIG

Panelists: Maria Ilieva, Lecturer in International Business and Martin Heinberg, Associate Professor of Marketing, University of LeedsLeeds University Business School, Committee officers at AIB Sustainability SIG
