As part of the 16th International Week organized between 20 and 24 May 2024, the Faculty of Economics and Business of the University of Maribor will host the 8th International Scientific Conference on 21 May, 2024.

The main goal of FEB International Week is to strengthen international collaboration with our partners, exchange knowledge, and good practices through lectures, presentations, and workshops and intensify international research opportunities.

The 2024 conference theme, “Challenges in the turbulent economic environment and companies’ sustainable development”, addresses current challenges of the environment in which organizations operate. Here, the emphasis is placed on artificial intelligence, digitization, the persistence of inflation, war areas worldwide and many others. Apart from that, the challenges related to the continued concern for socially responsible operations to which organizations and society have committed themselves need to be addressed, too.

We invite scholars to submit their research findings focusing on the challenges in a turbulent economic environment and companies’ sustainable development. The deadline for abstract submission is 21 January 2024.

There is no Conference fee.

All accepted papers will undergo a double-blind peer review and will be published in Conference Proceedings, which will be issued online by the University of Maribor Press (press.um.si/index.php/ump).
