About

AIM OF THE CONFERENCE

The International Business Conference (IBC) has three main goals, namely:

  1. To provide an international platform for the presentation, discussion and debate of different academic and professional approaches and research on recent developments in an ever-turbulent business and political arena.
  2. To provide the opportunity for academics, practitioners and post-graduate students to have their work validated and benchmarked within the benevolent academic and professional community.
  3. To create a pleasant and enjoyable environment to serve the first two goals where delegates can also relax, get to know their fellow academia informally, and truly build their networks.

CONFERENCE ACCREDITATION

All the previous IBC conferences, including the 2018 conference held at the Le Meridien Hotel in Mauritius, have met the criteria for subsidy set by the South African Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). At present, the 2019 conference, which was held at the Africa Pride Arabella Hotel & Spa in Hermanus, South Africa, is undergoing the rigorous process to qualify for a subsidy. (We positively await the outcome; however, take note that this is normally a two-year process at DHET.)
