The Institute for Global Business Research is a 501c3 non-profit organization (EIN 83-3383562) dedicated to the advancement of learning and scholarly research in all areas of business. Our goal is to provide outlets through conferences and journals for researchers to share their body of knowledge with a global audience.
We believe that knowledge is power and that the best way to serve the global community is by sharing our knowledge with our peers.
We are dedicated to supporting authors by providing them with constructive feedback that will further their expertise and broaden their field of knowledge, without diminishing their enthusiasm or confidence.
Our authors, reviewers and conference participants all share a common vision: the betterment of society through the exchange of ideas. The IGBR is happy to provide a venue for that exchange through our conferences and journals.
We believe that the most effective way to further the body of knowledge in any field is to provide a supportive environment where collegial communication is maintained. To this end, we have appointed Board Members, Editors and Reviewers who embody this vision, and who have many years of experience in supporting fellow researchers on their journey of discovery.
We hope you will become a member of the growing community that the IGBR represents.
