Current reports on Africa indicate that the continent is one of the fastest growing regions of the world, second to East Asia. In fact, of the ten fastest growing economies in the world, six are located in Africa. To sustain the performance of African economies, it is important that African organizations, for-profit and non-profit, compete not only in Africa but also globally. For management research to be relevant and impactful, it must look at what really happens within African organizations, how African organizations achieve high performance and what makes a high-performing African organization.
In accordance with the theme of the conference, Building High Performing Organizations in Africa, the AFR Academy is looking forward to engaging conceptual and empirical papers, symposia, and professional development workshops on topics that that describe how to build effective and competitive organizations in Africa.
Our Conferences are open to African researchers and professionals. It is our determination to invite international scholars and professionals from Africa to increase the knowledge distribution through this platform. Our conferences have proved to be a knowledgeable hub for academic discussions. Participants will found an excellent opportunity for presenting new researches, exchanging information and discussing current issues.
