Welcome to the annual conference of the International Academy of Management and Business – IAMB, that took place on January 28 - 31, 2007, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The IAMB is a professional association dedicated to advancing the research, teaching, and practices of management and business worldwide in an intellectually stimulating, constructive, supportive and friendly environment.
Our goal is to bring scholars from various fields of management and facilitate meaningful interactions. Hopefully this will lead to professional development opportunities for scholars and practitioners in management and business. IAMB fosters a small conference setting (under 200 participants) with multi-national delegates. The small setting offers professional development opportunities for scholars and practitioners through personal contacts and networking.
This year the conference hosts scholars from 15 countries around the world, covering wide range of universities, academic institutions and businesses. The friendly atmosphere, the one on one opportunity for exchange and networking, and the multinational exposure were cited among the top benefits from conference attendees. Each submitted abstract/paper is peer reviewed and only accepted abstracts/papers were presented.
