You are invited to join researchers, educators, policy makers and business leaders at the 2009 Annual Meeting of the Academy of International Business (AIB) Northeast Chapter, being held at New York Institute of Technology Columbus Circle campus in midtown Manhattan. The conference is scheduled to begin on Thursday 1, October and end on Sunday, October 4, 2009.

One objective of the conference is to bridge the gap between the academic and business worlds of Asia and North America. In that spirit we will bring together business leaders, academic administrators and scholars of international business from the Asian region, including China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, Korea and others, with our American colleagues to meet and discuss contemporary and emerging issues in the global academic and business environments. We also provide a platform to promote collaborations to strengthen international business initiatives.

If you are a researcher, educator, policy maker, business practitioner, or student interested in international business, this conference is for you. Attending this four-day conference allows all participants the opportunity to:

  • Meet and socialize with the leaders in the business world;

  • Learn about and exchange ideas on current international business issues and education;

  • Network with organizations, institutions and experts in international business from around the world;

  • Develop connections with overseas institutions for possible collaborations in joint research, professional training, student exchange, internship, and educational cooperation;

  • Get in touch with overseas institutions that provide employment, visiting scholar, and overseas teaching assignment for individual faculty, and

  • Visit New York cultural attractions through tourism arrangements coordinated by the Center for International Business Studies
