Have You Met Rutgers-Newark?

John Cantwell is an expert in corporate technology, international business, and political economy

In a global economy, is it better to be a technological specialist or to be diversified? What impact do multinational companies have on technology creation and technological transfer? These are the kinds of questions for which Dr. John Cantwell seeks answers.

Cantwell, Professor II of Management and Global Business at the Rutgers Business School, and a faculty member of the Rutgers Division of Global Affairs in Newark, came to Rutgers from the University of Reading in the United Kingdom. He brings to his students a unique blend of skills and expertise in corporate technology, international business, and political economy.

In 1989, Cantwell’s research resulted in a groundbreaking book that helped inspired a new literature on the role of international networks in technology creation – now considered the center of the international business research area. Technological Innovation and Multinational Corporations has been cited in social science journals more than 250 times.

He is a founding fellow and former president of the European International Business Academy, a fellow of the Academy of International Business, and currently the editor-in-chief of the Journal of International Business Studies, the leading peer-reviewed international journal in the global business field. Although he lives in New York, he remains a member of the Marylebone Cricket Club and a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
