Welcome Participants,


Welcome to the annual conference of the International Academy of Management and Business – IAMB, that took place on January 28 - 30, 2008, in San Diego, California, USA.


The conference provided 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. This year the conference hosts scholars from 23 countries around the world, covering over 50 universities, academic institutions and businesses. The friendly atmosphere, the one on one opportunity for exchange and networking, and the multi-national exposure were cited among the top benefits from conference attendees. Each submitted abstract/paper is peer reviewed and only accepted abstracts/papers were presented. Selected manuscripts will be published in the International Journal of Management and Business, a Journal launched by IAMB.


About IAMB

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.
