The Changing Face of Globalization

As nations cope with natural disasters, financial uncertainty, political upheavals, and social unrest, it is time to examine and assess the impact on the Globalization of Business. Who are the winners and losers in this unstable era? What is the role of technology and social media? How can we prepare business leaders for the challenges of this new environment?

Multinational corporations span political, industrial and geographical borders. Managers in the international arena need to blend knowledge of various functional areas, skills and experience to navigate through complex innovative and highly competitive environment.

The objective of the 12th International Business and Economy Conference is to provide a forum for scholars analyzing the strategic challenges faced by firms, governments, institutions, and individuals in the global arena. In addition, cross-disciplinary submissions are encouraged which address issues in education, training, health care, human rights, the environment, and sustainability highlighting relevance and application to globalized world.
