Emerging Economies, as well as firms from these countries, have become an important part of the global business landscape. They not only offer us a great opportunity to build new theories about firms and how they compete, but also a great context to test and extend existing theories through empirical work. The purpose of this workshop is to have active scholars, from both the US and abroad, share interesting research on strategy issues related to emerging markets. We hope this extension will advance strategy research on this important topic as well as give scholars an opportunity to connect and network with the related community of faculty and researchers interested in this area.

Travel Information


Houston has two airports: William P. Hobby (HOU), 11 miles to the south of campus and George Bush Intercontinental (IAH), 24 miles to the north. Intercontinental is a hub of global travel. Hobby is a hub for regional, domestic travel. Together they offer 1,000 flights a day in and out of Houston.

When searching for flights, bear in mind that Hobby Airport is a hub for Southwest Airlines (SWA) and that information regarding SWA schedules and rates can only be accessed through its website (fare finding engines charge a referral fee to the carrier and SWA prefers to save the money).


Taxis provide ground transportation services from both airports. A taxi (one way) from IAH to campus would be approximately $60; from HOU to campus - $30.

Visit SuperShuttle for shared ride van service quotes and reservations.

To book Town Car service (between $85 and $95 each way), we recommend Franklin Transportation: (281) 856-9262 or (877) 856-9262.

Lastly, most major rental car companies have locations at both airports.
