In Collaboration with the School of Commerce at Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia, The Africa Academy of Management is organizing its 4th Biennial Conference in Addis Ababa from January 3 to January 6, 2018.
Addis Ababa is one of the oldest cities in Africa and the seat of the African Union and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa.
Current reports on Africa indicate that the continent is one of the fastest growing regions of the world, second to East Asia. In fact, of the ten fastest growing economies in the world, six are located in Africa. To sustain the performance of African economies, it is important that African organizations, for-profit and non-profit, compete not only in Africa but also globally. For management research to be relevant and impactful, it must look at what really happens within African organizations, how African organizations achieve high performance and what makes a high-performing African organization.
In accordance with the theme of the conference, Building High Performing Organizations in Africa, the Africa Academy of Management is looking forward to engaging conceptual and empirical papers, symposia, and professional development workshops on topics that that describe how to build effective and competitive organizations in Africa. Along with the intellectually invigorating discussions, we have plans for visits to local businesses and organizations, such as the headquarters of the Africa Union and the United Stations Economic Commission for Africa.
