The role of international business is becoming increasingly more prominent in the economic development and prosperity of every country.
Businesses are becoming more and more aware that sustainability and success in the global arena depends on their ability to achieve and maintain effective integration of global business activities. Business decisions, in order to support global integration in all facets of business life, require not only technical but also social and intercultural competence and innovative thinking as firms today have to master advanced technologies, face fierce competition, and embrace social and cultural diversity to a much greater extent than before.
The third Annual Conference of EDSI (2012) invites papers from researchers and practitioners from a wide range of backgrounds across business, management and the public sector with interests in decision making to share their work and experience, focusing on Innovation and Decision Making for Global Integration.
