The Harvard Business School International Seminar brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines to share research on topics such as global innovation, international human capital flows, the organization of multinational firms and institutions, and the business environment in emerging markets. The objective of the seminar series is to both share cutting-edge research on international business and global innovation as well as build a community of scholars interested in these topics. Regular participants include faculty and graduate students from Harvard Business School and other Boston-area researchers. The seminar also attracts affiliates of the Weatherhead Center and other members of the broader Harvard community. All Weatherhead Center affiliates and other members of the community are welcome to attend. The seminar meets three to four times each semester, usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. The schedule will be available soon on the seminar website.
