“New Theoretical Developments in Strategic Management: Opportunities for Research Contributions” is the topic of an interactive online seminar Thursday, 26 February, 12:00-1:30pm EST. The speaker is Michael Hitt, Distinguished Professor of Management and the Joe B. Foster Chair in Business Leadership and the C.W. and Dorothy Conn Chair in New Ventures at Texas A&M University. During the 90-minute seminar participants will explore theoretical developments in strategic management including the resource-based view, institutional theory, and a new concept of strategic entrepreneurship, and will offer updates on how more established theories such as TCE and agency theory are being applied.

The seminar is sponsored by the Agribusiness Economics & Management (AEM) Section of the Agricultural & Applied Economics Association (AAEA). The AEM Section has sponsored online seminars previously on topics that may be new or less familiar to its members, one of the more valuable contributions any professional society provides. Although many of the “new theoretical developments” described above may not seem quite so new to frequent O&M readers, they are certainly more novel in the context of agribusiness research.

You can register for the conference as an individual or as a host location for as many people as can fit into your local class or conference room. This is an especially good opportunity for graduate students and faculty to learn more about the research opportunities in this area. I expect several of our Missouri colleagues and grad students will be participating. Check out the conference website for information about technical requirements and registration.
