University hosts major management conference

Leading experts from the world of international management and business will arrive in St Andrews this weekend for a major conference on ‘Management Futures’.

During the three-day BAM (British Academy of Management) conference, 400 speakers will deliver lectures and workshops on a range of topics – from women entrepreneurs to the social impact of museums. One speaker will examine socially irresponsible marketing while another will dissect the anatomy of the Georgio Armani Group.

The conference, which runs from Monday 30 August until Wednesday 1 September 2004, will attract around 600 delegates.

Conference Chairman and Head of the School of Management Professor Peter McKiernan said, “This is an unusual coup for the School. In 2004, we have hosted the conferences of both the European and the British Academies. That is a feat that has never been achieved by any Management School in Europe before.

“The University’s bold initiative to invest in a world class Management School in the Gateway building will be repaid by the network contact made with leading experts from across the globe. This is a proud moment for us all.”

Highlights include:

· Surrogate families for employees working in an isolated work environment · High flying women academics · Family-work conflict and life satisfaction of Indian mens · Women entrepreneurs · Barriers faced by black and ethnic minority female entrepreneurs · Marketing of films · Social impact of museums · The anatomy of the Georgio Armani Group · Customer behaviour – browsing · The disabled consumer · The problem of supplying lean beef · The first woman leader · The celebrity CEO backlash · Why employees take claims to tribunals · Socially irresponsible marketing · Occupational culture in the UK police service · Mission statements – do they still have a role? · The success of women in Portugese management
