We are looking forward to welcoming the academic and research community to the beautiful city of Dubrovnik from 4th–5th April 2014 for the 2nd International OFEL Conference, hosted by the University of Dubrovnik, Department of Economics and Business Economics.

OFEL 2013 was our first conference to date, with high profile plenary sessions and over 120 papers presented across 25 tracks. In conjunction with the OFEL conference an academic writing workshop was held by the Academy of Management (AoM) for early career researchers from Universities in the South East Europe area.

The OFEL 2014 conference offers a unique opportunity for scholars and practitioners interested in the issues related to governance, management and entrepreneurship to share their thinking and latest research findings.

The keynote speaker at the OFEL 2014 Conference will be Professor Gerard P Hodgkinson, Warwick Business School, University of Warwick, UK. Keynote title: ‘Understanding the managerial and organizational mind: Reflecting on the past and looking to the future’

We are very pleased to announce that the Corporate Governance Summit will be held as a part of the Conference, along with the academic writing workshop, which will certainly enrich the experience of all participants. 

We would like to invite all scholars, post-graduate students and doctoral candidates interested in any of these fields of research or practice to join us in shaping the future of our discipline in a friendly and supportive environment.
