Institutionens grundare (1958) professor Sune Carlson avled den 22 september 1999 i en ålder av 90 år. Hans minne hedrades bland annat genom minnesrunor i de stora dagstidningarna. Som institutionens professorer Lars Engwall och Jan Johanson skrev blev han ”banbrytande genom att etablera internationellt företagande som ett forskningsområde”. Han har mycket påtagligt satt sin prägel på institutionen. [dead link]
