The European Academy of Management (EURAM) is kindly inviting you to participate in the 14th Annual Conference 2014, held June 4 – 6, 2014 in Valencia, Spain at the Faculty of Economics at the University of Valencia.
The theme of the conference, Waves and Winds of Strategic Leadership for Sustainable Competitiveness, is aimed to open an interesting and fruitful dialogue about how management research and education can contribute to the enhancement of new waves and winds of strategic leadership that will stimulate a balanced and sustainable view of competitiveness in our societies.
While firms are currently compelled to achieve and sustain very high levels of competitiveness, the recent financial crisis and scandals, and the increasing attention of our societies and institutions to the attainment of higher ethical standards and to the sustainability of our economic models, constitute a paradox that entails important challenges to scholars, practitioners, politicians and regulators.
Knowing more about this highly stimulating, and yet particularly complex challenge requires us, as management scholars to put into question the existing paradigms and commonly accepted practices, bridge the gaps with other sciences interested in the same challenge, and open our debates to other key stakeholders.
We are firmly convinced that Valencia is a fantastic location to engage in such an interesting debate and to explore the ways to multiply the best managerial practices, as well as it social and institutional recognition. Valencia is a fascinating and open minded city, culturally enriched by all the influences that arrived to us with the pleasant waves and winds of the Mediterranean Sea.
EURAM conferences provide an ideal opportunity for scholars and practitioners, as well as doctoral students to share and discuss their most recent high quality work with other experts in their research fields.
We invite you to submit your paper to the EURAM’s Strategic Interests Groups (SIGs) or to the Conference General Track. For detailed descriptions please visit the specific SIG sections.
