President, Academy of International Business


Dr. Lorraine Eden is a full professor in the department of Management at Texas A&M University where she holds the Gina and Anthony Bahr ’91 Professorship in Business. A naturalized US citizen who was born and raised in Canada, Professor Eden received her PhD with Distinction in Economics from Dalhousie University.

She has published more than 150 scholarly articles in journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Canadian Journal of Economics, Journal of International Business Studies, and Organization Science. Of her several books, the best known is Taxing Multinationals (University of Toronto Press, 1998). Her current research focuses on two areas: the economics of transfer pricing (the pricing of related party transactions), and multinational (MNE) strategies for coping with institutional distance, liability of foreignness and “hot spots” (e.g., conflict zones, corrupt economies, tax havens).

Dr. Eden has been a Fulbright Scholar, a Pew Fellow, and a receiver of multiple awards including election as a Fellow of the Academy of International Business (AIB) in 2004 and the AIB President’s Award in 2012 for her contributions to the international business profession. In April 2016 she was elected to a three-year term on the AIB Executive Board  as President-Elect (2016-2017), President (2017-2018) and Past President (2018-2019). She is a former Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of International Business Studies.  In 2001, she founded WAIB (Women in the Academy of International Business), an AIB group now with 800+ members. She received the inaugural “Woman of the Year” award from WAIB in June 2016.

At Texas A&M, Dr. Eden teaches courses on transfer pricing, multinationals, and the economics of international business. Her Transfer Pricing course is cross-listed as a Bush School and an Economics course, and she has placed more than 100 of these students in transfer pricing careers around the world. Her transfer pricing website can be found at http://voxprof.com/eden/eden-transfer-pricing.html. More than 220 of her former students and colleagues are networked through the closed LinkedIn group, Transfer Pricing Aggies.  She consults on transfer pricing and MNE strategies with the Analysis Group, and her transfer pricing course (MGMT/INTA/ECON 663) is an Advanced Diploma in International Tax (ADIT)-approved course for the Certificate in Transfer Pricing.
