Abstract: The Institute of International Business (IIB) is a research and education center at the Stockholm School of Economics. From its humble beginnings in 1976, IIB has systematically built a trans‐discipliary research environment with an extended international network.

“…The analysis leads to further interest in center activities and factors driving center formation and growth. The literature presented earlier includes a number of case histories such as Foss (2007), Fraiman (2002) and Zander (2006).
