International Academy of Business and Economics (IABE)
Summer Conference at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona
Barcelona, Spain June 3-5, 2011
Happy New Year 2011!
You are cordially invited to attend to the IABE – Summer Conference which will take place during June 3-5, 2011 at Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona (Spain). The main theme of the conference is: “Development in Research & Education”. Its scope is to review research advances in both business and economics, seeking to demonstrate new concepts, methods, models and theories.
The IABE-2012 Barcelona conference aims, among other topics, to discuss whether international business can be an important part of the solution to the socio-economic problems raised by the 2007-2008 global financial crisis, in order to build a stronger and more resilient global economy, and to pave the way for an era of renewed prosperity.
The conference especially invites both theoretical and empirical contributions to shed further light on these issues. In addition to contributions focusing on the main theme of the conference, papers and panel proposals are invited on a wide range of economics and international business topics.
The IABE Summer Conference has earned a reputation as a prominent Rendez-vous, a meeting point for academicians, PhD students and business leaders worldwide. We hold academic conferences for business and economics faculty each year in June in Europe and in October in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Why Barcelona 2011? In fact, Barcelona is recognised as a Global City due to its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, education and tourism. Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain after Madrid. For those who have travelled a lot it is easy to see why Spain is one of the most popular countries to live or visit. After France, Spain is the second most popular holiday destination in Europe.
