Conference Goals


The EuroMed Academy of Business annual conference is one of the major Business Management conferences of its kind in terms of size, quality of content, and standing reputation of attendees. Many of the papers presented contribute significantly to the business knowledge base.


Our goal is to create a friendly and approachable academy and environment, a strong network, whereby its members (including senior worldwide scholars, young faculty members, doctorate students, researchers and business practitioners) are guiding and mentoring each other. Further, participants attend at the conference’s Research Project Workshop in order to meet, improve research, collaborate with others and apply for EU project funding. Some of the conference distinctions are:


A.                Publications opportunities in many good journals

B.                 ISBN Conference Book of Proceedings with an ISSN for the book series which is

approved for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings Citation Index of Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thomson Reuters). See below;
