Join the Academy of Management on January 7-10, 2013 for their Africa Conference in Johannesburg, South Africa. The Gordon Institute of Business Science at the University of Pretoria will be hosting this conference.
The purpose of this conference is to bring Africa’s unique capabilities and needs to the attention of the world’s organization and management scholars and at the same time, to provide an opportunity for interested colleagues to collaborate and work on the many interesting theoretical and practical problems presented in Africa.
- Navigating Institutions: Business, Government, and Civil Society
- Emerging Market Firms and MNCs: Characteristics and Global Aspirations
- Base of the Pyramid: Emerging Market Consumers, Workers, and Managers
- Cultural Diversity and Transformational Societies
Much of the time together will be spent exploring and experiencing many of the region’s challenges first hand. Conference participants will spend one and half days of the four day conference “in the field” directly experiencing South Africa and the phenomena that interest them. The conference themes will orient that exploration through “Experiential Learning Journeys.”
Please look for the Call for Papers in January.
