The case studies cover an extensive range of industries, from high-tech and industrial sectors to service providers, non-profit organizations and university spin-offs. / International management research has a long tradition in Nürnberg. At the Nürnberg School of Commerce, the predecessor of the School of Business and Economics at the Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, dealing with international business activities already played a strong role. Eventually, the school would become one of the first in the German-speaking countries where a Chair for International Management was founded. With 30% of all students coming from abroad, the school presents a strong degree of internationalization. Furthermore, research in the field of international management enjoys an outstanding reputation. With the Nürnberg Edition on International Management, we would like to build on this longstanding tradition and present the latest research findings to academics, students and practitioners.
