University of the West of England and Gelisim University, Turkey are going to jointly host the 2nd Gelisim-UWE International Conference on Economics, Finance and Management, in May (3rd -4th), 2018. The conference will take place in the new business school building. The theme of the conference is “Challenges of the 21st Century in Economics, Finance and Management”.

In a highly competitive and uncertain global environment many businesses are struggling to successfully compete and grow across the globe while governments search for effective policies to catch up or stay ahead of their competitors. The rising global economies, volatile financial markets and evolving management practices pose new challenges that demand imaginative and innovative solutions from the academic and practitioner community.

This international conference on economics, finance and management aims to bring together scholars, researchers and practitioners on a common platform to address the challenges of the 21st century. This conference will provide opportunities for global participants to exchange views and research on current trends and problems in global economic developments, the financial world and management practices, and it will foster collaboration and networking opportunities to advance theory and practice.

Areas of interest:

The challenges of the 21st Century in economics, finance and management are broad and wide ranging. The conference scientific committee invites papers that reveal, solve or respond to these important challenges.
