International Business Faculty Seminar Series

International Business Faculty Seminar Series

The Weissman Center’s International Business Faculty Seminar series hosts prominent academics from around the world. They provide a multidisciplinary perspective on what the late Professor John Dunning called “the why, where and how of international business activity.” The series is designed to enhance international business research at Baruch College.

Professor Lilach Nachum coordinates the WCIB Faculty Seminar series, identifying speakers and papers to be presented each semester. She is a professor in the Department of Marketing and International Business where she teaches and conducts research on multinational corporations and international competition, particularly as it affects companies in knowledge intensive, professional services industries. Professor Nachum received her Ph.D. in International Business and Management from the Copenhagen Business School in 1994 and has an MBA and a BA from Tel Aviv University.
