Globalization is a featured research topic and an initiative at Harvard Business School.
The globalization of business has long encouraged Harvard Business School (HBS) faculty to research international business practices and the effects of globalization. Seminal contributions - Christopher Bartlett
on managing across borders
, Michael Porter
on competition in global industries
, and Louis Wells
on foreign investment in emerging markets
- helped pave today’s global research path. Supported by eight Global Research Centers
that facilitate our contact with global companies and the collection of international data, HBS faculty continue to shed light on questions that are critical to our understanding of international business and global markets. Informed by detailed company case studies and large-sample empirical investigations, HBS global research yields insights that help inform business practice and public policy.
