Abstract
ABSTRACTThis article proposes a conceptual framework for instilling and fostering a global mindset among students of business in general and international business in particular. Students learning to become global managers must first have an open mindset and be aware of changes in themselves. When managers encounter problems at a global firm, they need to consider the unique situations that cause problems and create appropriate solutions. Different settings or environments require different approaches, reflecting the complexity of heterogeneity and indeterminacy in decision-making. We suggest pedagogical methods for teaching international business by instilling a global mindset in business students.

AbstractLeveraging current research in international business strategies, this article reviews existing theories related to international strategies, such as industrybased, resource-based, and institutional-based theories, and how they fit within the concepts of relative positioning and strategic planning. Overall, this article seeks to extend these existing theories by providing a conceptual framework that originates in the ancient Chinese theory of yin and yang.

In addition, we integrate the effects of ownership structure, related‐party transactions and political connections into our analysis and continue to show a positive relationship. We show that ...

Some firms in internationally oriented industries are internationalized while other comparable firms in the same sector or industry do not. Observing this difference in strategic behavior among small firms led us to consider how differences in CEOs’ attitudes, international orientation, and mindset might explain it. Therefore, this study adopts a cognitive perspective on management to explore the formation of the global mindset and the relationship between the global mindset of small-firm decisi...

In this paper, we discuss several phenomena from the global financial crisis that challenge the validity of the assumptions of modern finance theory and the paradigm underpinning the theory. We identify some shortcomings in the prevailing paradigm and suggest working toward a new paradigm in financial economics with recommendations. We suggest top management of companies should approach financial decision making in a more philosophical rather than a mechanical mindset.

Abstract Global Mindset (GM) is a multifaceted construct that has received broad interest among practitioners and academics. It is a fragmented construct at this point in time, due to definitional overlap with other constructs such as global leadership and cultural intelligence. This overlap has created complexity for research that attempts to understand GM in isolation. Lack of clear boundaries in defining and conceptualizing this construct challenges researchers who are attempting to capture f...
