Welcome to CEGBI

The Centre for Evolution of Global Business and Institutions (CEGBI) aims to carry out groundbreaking research which will foster a better understanding of how business and institutions succeed in a global economy. Inaugurated in 2009, it has a high international and interdisciplinary profile.  It is composed of scholars based locally at The University of York and from a number of universities in the UK, continental Europe and the rest of the world. The main topics of research are international business history, global marketing and governance, entrepreneurship and social enterprise. A distinctive feature of the group's research is not only its focus but also its methods. The research draws on both qualitative (including archival and discourse) and quantitative methods and is informed by a range of theoretical perspectives and methodologies.
