Aim of the Conference.

In recent years, government and business organizations have faced coinciding challenges; the financial and environmental crises, rapid social and cultural change, and radical developments in technology, and in business itself. While such developments have led to widespread problems, they have also created new opportunities for many organizations, including new start-up businesses.

The College of Commerce and Economics, at Sultan Qaboos University in the Sultanate of Oman, is an academic institution dedicated to the advancement of teaching, research, and community service in the areas of business and management. This, the first international conference on Business and Society in the Middle East to be organized by the College of Commerce and Economics, aims to provide an interactive forum for academics, policy-makers, practitioners in the public and private sectors, researchers, and postgraduate students, to discuss their research, experiences and ideas relating to the conference theme.

The primary goal of the conference is to provide a platform for the examination and analysis of business, management and society in the Middle East, and thereby to promote scientific interaction between participants from around the world.

We thus welcome the submission of papers on a wide range of issues, including empirical and conceptual papers, case studies, and discussions of business and management practice. Areas include, but are not restricted to, Accounting, Business Communication, Business Education, Business Ethics, Business Statistics, Corporate Governance, Corporate Social Responsibility, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Gender Issues, Human Resources Management, Information Systems, Leadership, Legal Issues, Management, Marketing, Operations Management, SMEs, Policy Development and Strategic Planning, Supply Chain Management, and Sustainability Issues , Risk Identification and Analysis . All papers will be subject to blind peer review. The conference thus promises to be an interesting and productive event. We do hope you are able to participate, and contribute to its success. The official language of the conference is English.
