Welcome to the 10th IAMB 2011 Conference

June 20 - 22, 2011
Theme: Management Chalanges in Global Economy

The 10th IAMB Conference was originally scheduled for Alexandria, Egypt, but has been moved to Istanbul, Turkey. The conference 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 in the Middle East, Europe and beyond. This Conference provides an excellent opportunity to interact with regional scholars to discuss and explore opportunities for collaboration.


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), Online (ISSN 1949-9108) and In-Print (ISSN 1949-912). The Proceedings are indexed and are listed in various reference search engines. Selected presentations will be published in IJMB, International Journal of Management and Business. You may also attend the conference without making a presentation. Proposals for symposia are also welcomed.

The Conference is organized by IAMB and our Advisory Board member, Professor Dr. Mahmut Özdevecioglu and will be held at a luxurious hotel in the heart of Istanbul, Turkey. The Organizing Committee is also planning a sightseeing tour of Istanbul and the Bosphorus to all the delegates.
