Greetings AIB members! Have you thought about encouraging your students to submit a paper to the Annual AIB SE conference? Our conference welcomes research paper submissions from undergraduate, masters, and PhD students. Many of our universities are working to enhance research development opportunities for our students, this is a perfect venue for your students to build their research credentials and for your university to build its set of research opportunities for your students. While our annual meeting centers on faculty submissions, it has a strong emphasis on professional development and as an natural progression has built a welcoming environment for our early entrants into the career as an international business academic. The AIB SE conference has sessions for students of all levels, including prizes for best undergraduate, masters, and doctoral papers. The conference provides a positive environment for students who are interested in developing their research agenda and they may fully participate as reviewers of student papers, attend consortia, and present in conference sessions if accepted as a competitive paper.
