AGBA's Profile

 AGBA Brief:
Academy for Global Business Advancement (AGBA) was established in the American State of Texas as a "Not-for-Profit" organization in 2000. It is proud to boast today a membership of more than 1000 members based in more than 50 countries that include scholars from reputed academic institutions, corporate leaders, governmental officials, entrepreneurs and consultants based in western and emerging countries.

AGBA, as a global organization, aims to help academics and scholars at business schools across emerging countries to connect with the western (developed) world for mutual benefit. Such collaboration would accelerate the pace of globalization by furnishing ample opportunities to scholars in emerging countries to get recognition, disseminate new knowledge and assert themselves on the global stage.

 AGBA's Vision:
To be globally recognized as a leading "Not-for-Profit Charitable American NGO" dedicated to serve the academic, professional, government, corporate and entrepreneurial sectors worldwide.

AGBA's Mission:
Building on the dynamics of the ongoing globalization process, AGBA is committed to provide a global platform aimed at assisting academics, scholars, professionals, officials, entrepreneurs and consultants of emerging countries to assert themselves on the global stage for recognition, networking and dissemination of knowledge.

AGBA's Focus:
The main focus of AGBA is to provide an ongoing open global forum to discuss and analyze business and entrepreneurship development from different perspectives and viewpoints in order to improve understanding of underlying forces that (1) impact global developments and (2) shape the destiny of emerging countries such as Turkey, India, China, Thailand, Kenya, Indonesia, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain, etc. in the contemporary globalized economy. AGBA bridges geographic, cultural, disciplinary, and professional gaps by integrating different business disciplines while actively enhancing practitioneracademician interactions on a regional and global basis.

AGBA is sponsored by numerous universities, organizations, and agencies across US, Canada, UK, Europe, South America, Asia, and Africa.
