Preface from the Conference Program Chair

I am delighted to welcome you to the 6th Global Conference on Business & Economics in Gutman Conference Center, USA. In keeping with the tradition of Association for Business & Economics Research (ABER) conferences, we present you with a programme of cutting-edge research in the field of Business & Economics, in the form of papers and panel discussions. The programme continues to show a healthy mixture of high standards of selectivity coupled with wide participation from our academic community: 6th GCBE received 326 papers of which 255 papers were accepted, providing an overall acceptance rate of 78%. All manuscript submitted for the conference went through a double-blind referee process. The papers presented at the conference are also published in its proceedings.

Any ABER conference is only as good as the people who take time out of their very busy schedule to help put it all together. As Conference Program Chair, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to Sue Driskill, Dinesh Jain, Kati Stuller and Jessica Villalba. I am also grateful to our colleagues from Gutman Conference Center, under the steer of Amy Schoenberg, for offering to host this year’s conference and for their invaluable work in providing the necessary infrastructure and support for a successful conference. Finally, without your participation this conference would not have been possible. I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation to you.
