Attending the IAABD conference is a great opportunity to present research, get knowledge about other ongoing research and to expand the professional network of researchers in the World.

Jan-Erik Jaensson, PhD
VP of Communications

IAABD is an excellent platform to understand the challenges facing African business & economic development. I’m glad to be a member, learning from world class leaders & contributing to develop advanced solutions.

I would strongly recommend IAABD conferences for early career scholars as well as seasoned scholars who want to brush up on their research skills…The small group atmosphere and (African) cultural activities- safari and dance- are cherished memories for me.
