9th International Symposium on Multinational Business Management, Entrepreneurship, Organizational Change and Deployment Management 2017 Nanjing

  • Conference Call
  • Maas­tricht School of Man­age­ment (MSM) is a co-​organizer of the Ninth Inter­na­tional Sym­po­sium on Multi­na­tional Busi­ness Man­age­ment that will take place in Nan­jing, China on 1618 June 2017. The sym­po­sium is orga­nized by MSM’s part­ner Nan­jing Uni­ver­sity Busi­ness School.

    We cor­dially invite you to par­tic­i­pate in this inter­na­tional sym­po­sium. It will be our priv­i­lege to wel­come you to share your research results, man­age­ment expe­ri­ence, and cre­ative ideas with par­tic­i­pants from diverse back­grounds. We call for aca­d­e­mic papers from schol­ars, experts, and prac­ti­tion­ers at home and abroad.

    Con­fer­ence theme

    The sym­po­sium aims to pro­vide a forum for schol­ars, entre­pre­neurs, and CEOs from multi­na­tional firms to dis­cuss how cor­po­ra­tions can sur­vive and thrive in the envi­ron­ment of grow­ing entre­pre­neur­ship and orga­ni­za­tional and employ­ment rela­tions changes. We have cho­sen “Multi­na­tional Busi­ness Man­age­ment – Entre­pre­neur­ship, Orga­ni­za­tional Change and Employ­ment Rela­tions Man­age­ment” as the theme of the 9th Inter­na­tional Sym­po­sium on Multi­na­tional Busi­ness Management.

    Con­fer­ence background

    Fac­ing the increased pres­sure of inter­na­tional finan­cial cri­sis and eco­nomic down­turns, entre­pre­neur­ship has been con­sid­ered as one of the new engines of eco­nomic devel­op­ment nowa­days. Gov­ern­ments are encour­ag­ing entre­pre­neur­ship with the hope that it can boost the domes­tic econ­omy and guar­an­tee employ­ment stability.

    Entre­pre­neur­ial firms have become a dri­ving force for local gov­ern­ments to trans­form their local and regional economies. More­over, entre­pre­neur­ship also con­tributes to the inte­gra­tion of dif­fer­ent com­mu­ni­ties. In the long run, entre­pre­neur­ship has impor­tant spillover effects, includ­ing, orga­ni­za­tional restruc­tur­ing and chang­ing employee-​management relationships .

    In order to adapt to the busi­ness envi­ron­ment change, it is essen­tial for orga­ni­za­tions to keep pace with the envi­ron­men­tal demands. This adap­ta­tion requires orga­ni­za­tions to obtain infor­ma­tion from the exter­nal envi­ron­ment, main­tain and strengthen the effec­tive­ness of orga­ni­za­tional oper­a­tions. In the mean­time, the atti­tudes and behav­ioral pat­terns of orga­ni­za­tional mem­bers, and the rel­e­vant human resource poli­cies, such as employer/​employee rela­tions , also require sub­stan­tial adjustments.

    How­ever, since orga­ni­za­tional change can impose high uncer­tainty and tremen­dous impact on employ­ees’ work­ing rou­tines, most orga­ni­za­tions face resis­tance to orga­ni­za­tional change. Some of the time, these con­fronta­tions mainly lead to indus­trial dis­putes and labor unrest.

    Such sit­u­a­tion could be an even tougher prob­lem for multi­na­tional com­pa­nies, due to the national dif­fer­ences in employ­ment pol­icy, cul­tural back­ground, union his­tory, and legal sys­tems. How can com­pa­nies fos­ter sus­tain­able devel­op­ment, nur­tured by entre­pre­neur­ship, while suc­cess­fully respond­ing to the chal­lenges of orga­ni­za­tional and employ­ment rela­tions changes?

    Research topics

    Sub­mis­sions may include the­o­ret­i­cal issues, new ideas, method­olog­i­cal issues, empir­i­cal stud­ies, or case stud­ies in the field of enter­prise man­age­ment and devel­op­ments of Chi­nese and/​or multi­na­tional cor­po­ra­tions in entre­pre­neur­ship, orga­ni­za­tional change and employ­ment management.
