The fourth industrial revolution and the increasingly global market oriented economy have been raising new questions for Practitioners and Academicians in Business and Economics. What are the implications for national and transnational entities, global wealth distribution, transnational flows of goods and services, capital, people, and government regulation? What new theories, methods and approaches are available? How should Business and Economics education approach these new challenges?

As the world strides into the age of the robots, the Business & Economics Society International aspires to:

– Serve as a medium of open discussion for everyone interested in Business and Economics problems;

– Facilitate communication between Practitioners and Business/Economics Academicians as they pursue excellence in practice, teaching and research;

– Promote the disciplines of Business and Economics as fields of study.


(1) The Society is governed by The Board of Trustees. The Board,

– advises the conference organizers, and serves as the ultimate authority, on all matters that relate to Society’s conferences, publications and activities;

– elects members for the Board of Trustees out of nominees submitted by current Society Members;

– elects, when the need arises, the Editor-in-Chief of the Global Business & Economics Review (the Society’s journal) out of nominees submitted by
the current Society Members. The elected Editor-in-Chief, in collaboration with the journal’s Editorial Board Members, may design editorial policy
and act independently from the Board of Trustees. The Editor-in-Chief may request advice from the Board of Trustees at any time.

(2) Trustees are expected to serve for at least two (2) years and every two years they elect a Chair and a Lieutenant Chair. The Chair calls Board of Trustees
meetings, which may take place in cyberspace and/or in person.

(3) Registration fees to attend the Society’s conferences as well as annual membership dues are waived for all current Trustees.
