February 11 and morning of 12, 2012:


Symposium presentation in Atlanta, Georgia


(dinner/reception, 7:00 p.m.  Friday 10, 2011)



A global race to develop world-class universities is under way in most
emerging countries. The dominant management education models emanating from
Europe and North America are in a phase of adaptation as they compete for
global intellectual capital, essential to achieve "knowledge economy" status
and attract and retain foreign direct investment. New and more established
emerging market economies account for eighty percent of the world's
population, some 75% of its trade growth in the foreseeable future,
following U.S. Department of Commerce data. These markets are located in
North, South, and Central Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, the African
continent, the Russian Federation and new member states of the European


Global business education represents both a challenge and an opportunity for
higher education actors to respond to the international and local talent
pool requirements of emerging and developing economies.. Often in catch-up
mode with decision makers heretofore trained overseas, the potential for
domestically-trained leaders in Emerging Markets and local innovation is
palpable.. Fast changing demographics and market dynamics more than justify
a scholarly review and analysis of a policy area identified as critical by
scholars, public policy makers, and business executives. This conference
builds on the established scholarship of the organizing institutions, and
will result in a published volume of high quality submissions. Previous
conferences on the topic have led

to the following edited volumes:

Manuscript Preparation


1. Articles should be typed using font size 12 on A4 paper.


2. Apart from diagrams and other illustrations, authors are encouraged to
use one continuous document.


3. Each page should be numbered and line spacing should be double-spaced.


4. Each article must have a cover page which clearly indicates the title,

and each author's institutional affiliation and an abstract which does not
exceed 150 words. Authors should bear in mind that abstracts will be used to
publicize the content of their article and should therefore emphasize the
value of the article's contribution to learning.

Authors should also attempt to make the abstract understandable to both
academics and laypersons alike. Case studies must be accompanied by a
teaching note which outlines relevant analytical insights, learning points
and teaching strategies. Both the case study and teaching note will be peer


5. Authors should use footnotes instead of endnotes.


6. Any diagrams, graphs or other illustrations should be clearly numbered
and supplied at the end of the document. Diagrams, graphs and illustrations
should be provided in a form suitable for immediate reproduction for
publication. The location of the diagrams in the main text of the article
should be indicated by an insertion of the type: {table 1.2 near here} etc.
In cases where diagrams, graphs and illustrations are based on basic
statistics which are not in the public domain, the data should be submitted
along with the article.

The data will not be published.


7. Where mathematical symbols are used, authors should attempt to use
conventional form of notation. Roman alphabet is preferred to Greek. In
cases where fractions are used, authors should use x/y as opposed to x y


8. Tables should clearly labeled, titled and as far as possible be
self-explanatory. Units of measure must be clearly defined.
