The ISM Journal
The ISM Journal of International Business is the key vehicle for intellectual exchange among the ISM academic community and beyond. In tune with the exciting times we are experiencing at ISM, The ISM Journal of International Business was recently revamped. Papers are assessed through a double-blind review process. The journal is released annually and submissions are accepted throughout the year. All topics related to international business and management are considered.

Consistent with its mission to produce impact-generating research, ISM has created two research groups reflecting the interests and activities of its community. These research and practice-oriented groups are intended for current students, faculty, and alumni.
The Fintech group gathers all those interested in the disruptive effects of Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, and the Internet of Things on financial activities, banking, and global transactions. This group aims to produce research work on innovative start-ups, financial inclusion in emerging markets, and moneyless transactions, to name a few.
The youth entrepreneurship group aims to analyze and suggest policies to enhance entrepreneurial activities in the social segment that is the key change driver in emerging markets.
