Paula Caligiuri, professor of International Business and Strategy at the D'Amore-McKim School of Business, has been named an Academy of International Business (AIB) Fellow – a prestigious group that contributes to the advancement and development of the international business field.

With Caligiuri's appointment, Northeastern University now has the highest concentration of AIB Fellows at one academic institution. D'Amore-McKim professors Ruth V. Aguilera and Alvaro Cuervo-Cazurra were elected in 2016. Professor Ravi Ramamurti was named a fellow in 2008, and starting July 2020, he will serve as the Deputy Director of the AIB Fellows. In addition, Northeastern's President Joseph E. Aoun received an honorary award in 2016, naming him AIB's International Educator of the Year.

The AIB, a leading association in international business and policy, empowers a global community of approximately 3,400 scholars and specialists who advance knowledge in international business research, education, policy, and practice. Only a little over 100 members serve as AIB Fellows.

Caligiuri's research covers expatriate management, global leadership development, and cultural agility. She is a work psychologist dedicated to helping companies, business teams, and executives become effective in today's complex global environment. Her work has earned her recognition as one of the most prolific authors in international business and has been published in top scholarly journals such as Journal of International Business, International Journal of Human Resource Management, Journal of World Business, Journal of Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, and International Journal of Intercultural Relations.

“I am grateful for the recognition and honored to be elected AIB Fellow,” says Caligiuri. “As a psychologist, my election to AIB Fellow signals the important role people play in influencing today's global economy.” 

At Northeastern, she founded and directs the Cultural Agility Leadership Lab (the CALL Program), a corporate-sponsored international volunteerism program in partnership with the National Peace Corps Association.

In addition to her appointment at D'Amore-McKim, Caligiuri runs her own consulting firm, TASCA Global, which works with leading organizations on the selection and development of culturally agile students and professionals. She also serves as Senior Editor for the Journal of World Business, a top-ranked journal in international business, and is a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology.  She has been a frequent expert guest on CNN and CNN International and has a popular LinkedIn Learning course, Managing Globally.
