Welcome to the 25th IAMB Conference
March 12-14, 2018
The 25th IAMB Conference is organized by IAMB in collaboration with and sponsored by the School of Economics and Business, Saint Mary’s College, Moraga, CA. The conference will take place in the lovely San Francisco, CA bay area. San Francisco is the cultural, commercial and financial center of northern California making it an especially appropriate place to hold an international academic business conference.
San Francisco is known for its cool evenings, foggy micro-climates, steep hills, and an eclectic mix of architecture and landmarks. As a port city on the west coast of the United States, San Francisco is highly accessible from most parts of the world.
This conference in San Francisco provides a platform for professionals, practitioners, academics, educators and researchers in the various fields of management and business to disseminate and share the latest research, knowledge and experiences. This conference attracts scholars from 25-35 countries from five continents.
IAMB is inviting scholars, practitioners and others to submit papers for presentation. Your submission will be published in the Conference Proceedings on a CD-ROM(ISSN 1949-9094), and Online (ISSN 1949-9108).
Selected presentations will be published in the IAMB Journal, International Journal of Management and Business. You may also attend the conference without making a presentation. Proposals for symposia are welcomed.
Join us for a conference in one of the most exciting and colorful cities in the world. The conference is friendly, warm and provides opportunities for discussions, feedback and possible collaboration!!
