Nobel International Business School (Ghana) attempts Bridging Gap between Academia and Industry

Publish date:2018-02-28

One key factor hampering gains being made by today’s managers is the lack of evidence for proper decision making. The starting point for evidence-based management is that management decisions should be based on a combination of critical thinking and the best available evidence.

Call for Papers - 2018 International Conference on Business and Management Dynamics

Publish date:2018-02-01

Technological advances and improvements in global infrastructure have made the global firm very competitive. The rewards for this strategic approach have been increased profits derived from areas that would normally not be accessible. Many firms have, therefore, retuned their strategies to give them global orientations. This is also the time when Africa is touted as “the next big thing” in global business.
