The Academy of Business & Retail Management is proud to have an established record to organising and managing international academic conferences. This Conference seeks to elucidate a wealth of issues in all aspects of business management, health and social care sciences, management education, teaching and learning methodologies and many more. Contributions should therefore be of interest to scholars, practitioners and researchers in management in both developed and developing countries targeting a worldwide readership.
With the world undergoing a period of deeper engagement and interaction greater than any time in its history it is essential that we endeavour to examine globalization in its many and varied manifestations. The International Conference on Business and Globalization (ICBG) seeks to elucidate some of the complexities of commercial engagement, policy formulation and reactions to change. It has been a conscious decision to locate the conference in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates as it exemplifies many of the current features of globalization in regards to business, employment opportunities, transportation and international trade. Leaders in the political arena, in commerce, academia and in almost every field of human activity have much to gain from exploring these important themes.
