Conference Theme
“Emerging Markets and the New Dynamics of Management”

Since centuries, it has been perceived that, the western world is at the forefront of innovative theories and practices in management. Last two decades have evidently demonstrated that now it is no more the hegemony of the developed world in contributing towards management art and science.

The BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and other European countries are now emerging as sunrise economies and are offering new dynamics of management. Be it grassroots level technologies or socio-economic development, the emerging markets are certainly presenting the new world economic order. This conference is an endeavour to disseminate the new dynamics of management from emerging markets.

Contributions are invited in the areas including but not limited to:

  • Strategic management
  • Finance and accounting
  • Economics
  • Marketing and consumer behaviour
  • Human resource management
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Organization behaviour
  • International management
  • Operations Management
  • Technology and Innovations management
  • Public and not-for-profit management

Authors may consider the above listed areas; however if they wish to develop a special session around a specific topic, the information is available in the call for papers document.
