The track invites to reflect on the determinants of competitiveness from a bottom-up, firm-level perspective. A focus on competitiveness centered on firms remains underexplored in the management literature. The drivers of national and regional competitiveness building on the interplay of firms, clusters, sub-national units and entire economies bring different yet complementary views up for academic discussion, with relevant theoretical and practical implications.
The track aims to unveil the ultimate determinants of a nation’s or region’s productivity, rooted in the strategies and operating practices of locally-based firms, the vitality of clusters, and the quality of the business environment in which competition takes place. Submissions addressing the roles that firms, industry associations, universities, and other institutions play in competitiveness are encouraged. In modern international competition, each of these institutions has an important role in economic development that is shifting. Moreover, the process of creating and sustaining an economic strategy for a nation or region is a daunting challenge. Submissions are likely to explore not only theory and policy but also the organizational structures, institutional structures, and change processes required for sustained improvements in competitiveness.

Opportunity for peer-reviewed publications
Books publishers and special issues that may welcome the track’s best papers:
Competitiveness Review (Emerald)
International Journal of Competitiveness (Inderscience)
• Additionally, the corresponding proponent is currently discussing a (text)book proposal, which could potentially include the topic’s best papers.

The Economics of Climate Change

Christian Reiner, senior researcher at LBS, was invited by the Carinthian Economic Society (Volkswirtschaftliche Gesellschaft Kärnten) to deliver a talk on the economics of climate change. About 100 visitors attended the talk on October 3rd 2019 in Klagenfurt, Carinthia’s capital. Mr Reiner stressed the economic case for ambitious climate policy as well as the chances for business.

Master Class of 2019 – Congratulations!

On September 20, we were delighted to welcome many proud families and friends to the Lauder Business School campus for a Masters graduation ceremony. The ceremony started with a welcoming speech by our Executive Director Alexander Zirkler in the beautiful baroque LBS ballroom. In his address, he highlighted the international quality of both our Master programs and drew the parallel: “The value of your diplomas will increase in time like the value of a good painting.”
