Conference Theme The 2013 Managing in a Global Economy conference, to be held in Seville, Spain is designed to foster an international exchange of management research and practice among scholars and managers from around the world. The conference theme, “Collaboration, Learning, and Discovery” was chosen recognizing that issues of collaboration across nations, industries, academic institutions, and companies are crucial for competitive survival. The process of learning and adaptation profoundly shapes the ability of organizations to face the challenge of managing sustainably in the 21st century.

Following past conference practice, there will be a mix of academic sessions, site visits, cultural activities, and keynote addresses by local experts. This conference is open to a discussion of perspectives on economic, cultural, technological, sustainability, and ethical factors that affect global managers. The theme is meant to be interpreted broadly. Papers, cases, roundtable discussions, and exercises exploring the complexities of our new world challenges are welcomed. Papers addressing the practical approaches to dealing with these challenges in individual nations are also welcomed and will be grouped with papers dealing with similar issues from other countries, to create comparative sessions.
An Invitation to Seville and Spain
A Glimpse of Seville...
Seville is the artistic, cultural, and administrative capital of Andalusia, in Southern Spain. It is easily accessible by plane and high speed train. The city is more than 2,000 years old, and the passage of the various civilizations has left Seville with a distinct personality. The city over the centuries has seen the amalgamation of the Roman and Moorish cultures, followed by Renaissance influences. The infrastructure available in the city is contributing to the growth of an economy dominated by the service sector, but in which manufacturing is gaining a considerable place. The EAMI is going to Seville to explore the impact of its economic and cultural history while also engaging in a multi-faceted conversation about the future.
