GLOB~S | THE GLOBAL SCOPE LAB,George Washington University

GLOB~S is a platform for multi-disciplinary collaboration among scholars, business managers, and policymakers to generate science-based evidence on the drivers and consequences of business internationalization and to translate such evidence into performance- and social-welfare enhancing solutions.GLOB~S responds to the rise in the exposure of the average firm to uncertainty and risk in foreign markets in the form of shocks, such as political radicalization, natural disasters, terrorist attacks, technological accidents, and episodes of violent crime. The organizational ability to manage and learn from these shocks is a driver of competitive advantage and sustainability and we seek to design and implement projects and events to better understand and propagate such ability in the form of firm strategies, market practices, and public policy.
