We continue the ongoing dialogue in AMLE on business school hubs and addresses from Rogmans (2019, this issue) by evaluating the applicability of Dunning’s OLI advantages—Ownership (O), Location (L), Internalization (I)—in explaining Dubai’s emergence as a global education hub. Because business schools typically possess few transferable Ownership-advantages, Dunning’s OLI advantages theory appears simplistic and decontextualized when applied to the global business school field. This commentary contributes to existing research on business school hubs by providing some guiding points for future discussions seeking to develop a better understanding of international branch campuses.

It also illuminates how various economic activities in a specific country are governed at multiple geographical level. Even though there is a lot of research on economic development, regional studies need to be further researched to map the development happening in the globalized era
Background – Economic geography is the study of the distribution and spatial organization of economic activities across the world and is a dynamic sub-discipline of geography. However, many economists have also approached the field in ways more typical of the discipline of economics. Space or location analysis is where local growth models include space as an economic resource as well as a generator of dynamic advantage for the firms situated in it, therefore, it is trivial to emphasise the importance of location for economic activity, however, only recently it has been given due consideration by economic theory

Background – Psychological literature presents such notions as living space, mental image, psychological space, etc.; however, only a few pieces of research practically view the modal content of students' spatial organization within the limits of their social and adaptive security. Therefore, it is essential to develop empirical programs for studying the modal features of students' personal space in a socio-adaptive dimension
Background – Since 2016, a number of research activities on topics such as children's tourism in Kazakhstan, family tourism in Dubai and children's tourism in Dubai were conducted by the authors.
