MACERATA, MARCHE (May 26, 2017) – Visiting scholar, Professor Peter Buckley, lectured in the Polo Pantaleoni to University of Macerata (UNIMC) students and faculty on multinational enterprises and how they relate to the “global factory" within the Eu project Grage coordinated by professor Francesca Spigarelli. Professor Buckley is a renowned scholar in the field of international business and currently is a professor of international business for the Leeds University Business School, the founder/director of CIBUL, and the director of the Confucius Institute for the University of Leeds in Leeds, England.

Titled, “The Global Factory: The Multinational Enterprise as a Distributed Network,” Professor Buckley’s presentation analyzed globalization and examined the interaction of markets and institutions and their conflicts. The presentation also proposed strategies for the focal firm in the global factory and how they impact the host and source country.

“One of the key strengths of multinational enterprises is their ability to adapt,” Buckley commented as he discussed the changing landscape of the global economy. Professor Buckley shared how the building blocks to the global factory matter. He recommended that professionals should analyze the global/local contrasts, outsourcing, knowledge management, networks, supply, demand, and production.
