Overview: Join us for the 11th AIB-MENA Conference on December 10-13, 2023. This year, we will meet in the vibrant city of Rabat, Morocco, at the Africa Business School, Mohammed VI Polytechnic University. We aim to provide you with a memorable experience, adding to the relevance of academic conferences as a showcase of ground-breaking research by building bridges with practitioners and society to create value that significantly transcends the forum.
We will explore the contemporary theme of “Scaling Inclusive Entrepreneurship Across Borders for a Sustainable Future,” given the scaling of sustainable and inclusive solutions in the MENA region and its alignment with the role of academia as an active agent for societal change. The United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is based on the steadfast principle of “leave no one behind (LNOB).” Entrepreneurship is a transformational driver and one of the keys to reaching the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and driving economic growth based on sustainable development principles. However, inclusivity is essential for promoting a more diverse, equitable, and sustainable business ecosystem that advances prosperity for all.
At the 2023 AIB-MENA Conference, we will focus our minds on offering new insight and contributions into this and other IB topics that promote MENA as a region of unique management solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. We welcome conceptual and empirical papers that employ quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods approaches to address one or more topics within the conference tracks.
