Conference Details

Doing responsible business is a sustainable way of doing a business. This proposition is the focus of recent deliberations in practitioner and academic community. Some prominent management scholars have pointed out that management scholarship and education often fail to develop value –driven human capital. This human capital needs to be socially relevant, responsive and creative, aiming to transform society and business community in order to resolve the global challenges related to sustainability especially in South Asia.

This year 6th International Conference on Contemporary Issues in Business Management (ICIBM) looks at what “responsible and sustainable business” means in the context of emerging markets, particularly the role of China’s belt and road initiatives for neighboring economies including – China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). We also seek to explore how the management community of emerging markets, could best support the development of sustainable innovation and responsible management in collaboration with policy-makers, NGOs, businesses, media, and other stakeholders interested in the new roles.

Conference participants will have the unique opportunity to network with the business community, international keynote speakers from France, Spain, Macedonia and Australia. The attendees will experience the charming hospitality of Lahore. Lahore city is considered a cultural hub of Pakistan, and UCP Business School is one of the leaders in innovative management education in South Asia.
