Join us at Lappeenranta, Finland, from August 14th to 17th, 2024 as we explore the nexus between sustainability, digitalization, and international entrepreneurship. Let us chart a course toward a resilient and vibrant future for global entrepreneurial endeavors and research.

The conference's main theme is “International entrepreneurship in a world driven by digitalization and sustainability.” In the spirit of previous successful conference editions, this one promises to be an exceptional gathering of leading academics, practitioners, and policymakers interested in the dynamic fields of international entrepreneurship, sustainability, digitalization, and the growth of SMEs.

Building upon the tradition established by previous conferences since 1998, the 28th McGill International Entrepreneurship Conference aims to explore emerging developments and dominant patterns in an ever-changing domain of international entrepreneurship (IE).

In the past, distinguished scholars whose names have become synonymous with groundbreaking research in the IE field, include Hamid Etemad, Leo-Paul Dana, Tamer Cavusgil, Nicole Coviello, Marian Jones, Gary Knight, Patricia McDougall, Rod McNaughton, Nina Nummela, Benjamin Oviatt, Per Servais, Antonella Zucchella, Rudolf Sinkovics and Martin Hannibal, among many others, have attended McGill  IE Conferences.
