Awards & Prizes

Despite the relatively modest size of the ANZIBA conference (typically 80-100 people), we are proud of the fact there are three substantial prizes associated with our conference.

    • The first is the ANZIBA Best Paper Award – selected from amongst all papers accepted to the competitive stream of the conference.    Link to past winners
    • The second is the Lawrence Welch Prize – Challenging the Status Quo – awarded to the best paper that challenges prevailing orthodoxy in IB. The selected paper may be purely theoretical or based on primary data; and will be selected from amongst the papers accepted to the competitive stream of the conference.
    • The third is the Sid Gray Prize – The Most Promising Thesis Proposal  selected from amongst the proposals accepted for the doctoral colloquium.   Link to past winners

All three awards carry a AUD $1,000 prize, plus free registration at the conference in the subsequent year.

As a Senior Fulbright Scholar to Australia, Professor Cavusgil also taught at Monash University. He has authored more than a dozen books and over 200 papers in the areas of firm internationalization, global strategy and research on emerging markets. In his recent research, he has been focussing on the evolution of middle-class in rapidly transforming economies.
