About this blog
This blog aims to cast an academic’s eye over the goings on in the business world, typically (but not always) in the international arena. It will also offer some insight into the world of research in these areas. Hopefully you will find some posts provocative or at least informative.
Who’s the guy in the cartoon? I am André Sammartino. I am a lecturer here in the Department of Management and Marketing at the University of Melbourne in Australia. I teach and research in the broad areas of international business and strategic management. My background etc can be seen at my staff page. Under “Research” you will find links to a range of published and working papers on topics including:
I also do occasional work on labour markets (springing from my training as an economic historian), and also applications of transaction cost economics.
Oh, and the cartoon itself was created by the immensely gifted Suzanne at Blue Bicycle as part of my wedding invitation earlier in 2008.
