Welcome to Kobe University Japan

Main Content

Prof. Dr. Ralf Bebenroth is Professor of International Business at Kobe University in Japan.

On the following pages, you will find information about International Business, mainly connected to Japan. It is my wish to contribute to closer links between research in business economics and the world of business, as the famous German academic Schmalenbach stated some 100 years ago.

My Research Topics

  • Corporate Governance Issues connected with Japan and Germany
  • M&A research, especially success factors of Inbound Japanese acquisitions
  • Expatriate research, especially about foreign expatriates in Japan
  • Wide variety of research in business and marketing
