On 4-12 October Graduate School of Management St. Petersburg University will host the 8th Emerging Markets Conference 2021. The conference will be held online.
The topic of this year is Bridging countries, organizations and people in a new fragmented world. The global business context continues transforming, making people, firms, and governments seeking for new ways to create and sustain competitive advantage and dynamic capabilities in the conditions of an uncertain environment. The search for the ways to transform respective challenges into a source of potential benefit is now on business and academic agenda and will be discussed at the 8th International Emerging Market Conference in 2021. In 2021, a comfortable presentation format is offered for business as part of the conference — snapshot from practitioners — one problem — one slide — one solution or discussion.
"One of the outcomes of the current megatrends is the shift of economic power towards China, India and other emerging markets that become the new hubs of global economic activities and effective participants in overcoming the pandemic crisis. There is thus an ever increasing need to illuminate on the emerging markets debate in the frame of the mainstream international business and management discussions. At GSOM Emerging Markets Conference 2021 scholars and practitioners can closely look at the emerging market context for the management and business studies".
