About the Conference

Theme: “Emerging Perspectives in a Disruptive Economy”

Indian economy is on a disruptive flux. On the political front, the initiatives like demonetization pushes towards cashless transactions, introduction of GST and many such changes, this has shaken the economy to the core. Technology is advancing at a pace which businesses are struggling to cope up with.

Automation and AI are catching many ‘business as usual’ organizations unaware. Governance and ethical issues are emerging from the most unlikely companies giving them testing times. Market leaders are facing the heat from new entrants into the industry. Companies are sweating it out to manage the new generation of staff called the millennial.

In brief, Indian economy and businesses are going through a disruptive phase which will either make or break its future. Such a context calls for a concerted effort from all stakeholders who believe in the future of this country to come together and devise proactive responses that can contribute in the policymaking for the sustainability of Indian economy.

This conference intends to bring together innovative academicians and industrial experts in the field of Economics, Business Management and Business Analytics to a common forum. The primary goal of the conference is to promote scientific information interchange between researchers, developers, engineers, students, and practitioners working in and around the world.

The conference will provide the stimulus required in advancing the research, teaching and practice of management as well as business throughout the world in an intellectually stimulating, constructive, supportive and friendly environment.

Participants will be provided with the opportunity to exchange ideas on the latest issues and challenges in the field of business, management and economics at national and international level.
