Global International Conference

Leadership for Development: Seeking a 21st Century Paradigm  

Overview

How to create, sustain and develop economically progressive and professionally sound communities as based on promising, prosperous and innovative leadership, management, and entrepreneurial skills, systems etc., is a major challenge facing 21st century business and educational landscapes through unfixed socio-economic and cultural contexts. In view of the realities, it would be essential for the knowledge communities to remain intact with new business contexts for learning and be driven with research-knowledge in order to sustain and thrive ahead. Although international and national business domains across global settings have begun to witness enormous advancements and innovations, the questions relating which principles of management in which ways, have their significance on promoting economic development in today’s globalized world, remains a very sparsely studied phenomenon. Besides, binaries e.g. leadership and management, entrepreneurship and innovation etc. that pose their significance in promotion of business acumen, are yet largely unexplored areas. Also, it is not without challenges being able to identify new principles and approaches to management that can adequately be used to engage communities in practice of appropriate knowledge, and enhance new skills or acumen while driving the upcoming economic activities in new contexts. More precisely, in context of economic fluxes associated with the changes entering the domains of management discipline and business world, determining to what extent and how leadership or management, entrepreneurship and/ or innovation signify for gearing development, is a crucial question. Associated are various large number of issues and challenges which will grow at a much faster pace tomorrow. In view of these, thus, being able to perform more efficiently is the top most necessity that today’s management education with power of research knowledge has to move ahead.

With a view to addressing various strands of the above indicated issues having relevance for management concepts, approaches, skills and practices within the emerging Global, Asian and Nepalese contexts, Global College announces 1st Global International Conference on Economics and Management. The international conference intended for engaging scholarly communities of learners, professionals and academic practitioners who would as well benefit an opportunity for their original research article to be published in the college peer reviewed journal titled: Journal of Management and Development Economics.
