After four successful meetings and scientific conferences of management departments from the South-East European region, held in September/October 2011-2014, in Tuzla, Split, Mostar and Dubrovnik, we have now developed a consortium of ten higher education institutions in the field of business and economics, supporting our initiative.

We continue to strive toward reaching the goal of creating a regional forum for exchange of ideas related to research and teaching in the fields of entrepreneurship, management, organization / organizational theory and information technology.

The regional approach re-emphasizes the collaborative approach in scientific and professional work, as well as enables our younger colleagues to meet their peers throughout the region, establish new professional links and exchange ideas/thoughts and best practices. We would like to contribute to a wider dialogue within the profession in the region and, therefore, we encourage the participation of all those who will be either presenting a paper, or intend to actively contribute to discussions and to the exchange of best practices.
