CONVERGENCE OR DIVERGENCE: EMERGING TRENDS IN MANAGEMENT RESEARCH AND CASES IN ASIA
China's One Belt, One Road Initiative: Implications for Management & Organizations in Asia
23-24 March 2018 at Pearl-Continental Bhurban, Pakistan
Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), with its partners, invites submissions for the 7th Asian Management Research and Case Conference 2018 (AMRC 2018).
According to the IMF, Asia continues to be the leader of global economic growth. Growth will remain strong at 5.4% in 2018. For the last several decades, emerging economies in Asia have successfully dominated the global economic outlook. These developments have led to a renewed interest among management scholars in conducting research on issues relevant to the region. This has led to the popular convergence-divergence debate amongst academics and management practitioners. With a significant increase in global foreign direct investment in Asia, are management practices in Asia gradually resembling those of the developed economies of the west or is the region pushing back? The challenges facing this region are manifold, heterogeneous and complex. In order to explore this debate further and add to the research on this topic, this year’s conference theme is ‘Convergence or divergence: Emerging trends in management research and cases in Asia’.
Submissions may include:
- Research Papers
- Teaching Cases
- Panel or Paper Symposia
- Proposals for Doctoral Colloquia
All submissions will be reviewed based on originality, rigor, and relevance to the conference theme. All accepted manuscripts will be presented at the conference.
Submission deadline – 27 November 2017 (Monday, 5 p.m. GMT)
