Conference Theme: "Integrating African Markets and Economies in a changing Global Economy: Issues, challenges and Opportunities".
The annual conferences of the International Academy of African Business and Development (IAABD) are open to scholars, professionals, and graduate students of any nationality who are interested or actively engaged in the research and performance or administration of business and economic development issues as they relate to Africa. These conferences aim at facilitating multidisciplinary research on Africa’s related issues, stimulating collaborations between Africa based researchers and their counterparts around the world, broadening and deepening global understanding of the various challenges facing African development and business, and advancing alternative solutions to Africa’s business and development challenges.
The 2013 conference continues to focus on the various impacts of the recent economic downturn on African business and development; and how integration of African economies might enhance economic growth and development. We invite to submit any original theoretical, conceptual, empirical, and managerial contributions that address the conference theme as well as other related areas of business and Development.
