AGBA's Profile

 AGBA's 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, global entrepreneurs, global traders, global exporters and importers, professionals, 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 practitioner -- academician 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.

Abstract

The growing level of inequality in the 21st century is a social, political and economic issue concerned by conscious citizens, scholars and policy makers around the world. Some on the right argue that inequality motivates progress and punishes laziness. In reality, under harsh conditions without any social safety net, the poor often have to work extremely hard just to survive. There is no real moral argument for concentration of outsize wealth vs. widespread poverty in today’s world. To this end, this research study asks the question - "How disruptive forces brought by technology and innovation can be better understood and employed from the perspectives of individuals and communities in rural and less developed regions?" To answer this question, this paper develops a conceptual framework that connects enablers and structural obstacles facing rural e-entrepreneurs; and then applies the framework to explore existing circumstances and to offer explanations leading toward theory building. In this context, this paper uses a case study approach that involving “what”, “why” and “how” questions to connect ideas of global importance from local Chinese practice.

Keywords: Structural Exclusiveness, Poverty, e-Entrepreneurship, Rural Development, and China.

Mentoring Doctoral Students

AGBA’s 2022 Doctoral Consortium will focus on mentoring doctoral students hailing from emerging countries. The faculty panel of the 2022 Doctoral Student Consortium will consist of accomplished and globally acclaimed scholars; who have a distinguished scholarly publication record, have served as editors of leading global journals, and/or have experience in supervising doctoral students across western countries such as US, UK, EU, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

AGBA’s 2022 Doctoral Consortium is a workshop for Ph.D. students from all over the world to further develop their research ideas, to learn about the challenges of conducting business research, building a successful academic career in their fields, and to broaden their professional networks on the global stage.  

Consistent with the developmental mission of AGBA, the consortium is open for Ph.D. students from all over the world, who would be attending its global conference in Turkey. One-to-one mentoring to Ph.D., students would be provided on the third day of the conference on July 4, 2022.

Ideally, doctoral students should have a strong research idea or be close to completing a doctoral dissertation proposal, and be far enough away from finishing their dissertation so that they could make good use of feedback received from their doctoral mentors during the conference.

Kindly contact AGBA’s President and CEO to schedule your mentoring session at least one month before our Turkish conference:

Why Turkey???

Our Host City (Istanbul):

Istanbul formerly known as Byzantium and Constantinople, is the most populous city of Turkey and is country's economic, cultural and historic center. Istanbul is a transcontinental city in Eurasia, straddling the Bosporusstrait (which separates Europe and Asia) between the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea. Its commercial and historical center lies on the European side and about a third of its population lives in suburbs on the Asian side of the Bosporus. With a total population of over 30 million residents, Istanbul is one of the world's most populous and largest city. It is the administrative center of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (coterminous with Istanbul Province). Istanbul is a bridge between the East and West.

Founded under the name of Byzantion (Βυζάντιον) on the Sarayburnu promontory around 660 BCE, the city grew in size and influence, becoming one of the most important cities in global history. After its re-establishment as Constantinople in 330 CE, it served as an imperial capital for almost 16 centuries, during the Roman/Byzantine (330–1204), Latin(1204–1261), Palaiologos Byzantine (1261–1453) and Ottoman (1453–1922) empires. It was instrumental in the advancement of Christianity during Roman and Byzantine times, before the Ottomans conquered the city in 1453 CE and transformed it into an Islamic stronghold and the seat of the Ottoman Caliphate. Under the name Constantinople it was the Ottoman capital until 1923. The capital was then moved to Ankara and the city is now called Istanbul.

The city held the strategic position between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean. It was also on the historic Silk Road. It controlled rail networks to Europe and the Middle East, and was the only sea route between the Black Sea and the Mediterranean. In 1923 Ankara was chosen instead as the new Turkish capital after the Turkish War of Independence, and the city's name was changed to Istanbul. Nevertheless, the city maintained its prominence in geopolitical and cultural affairs. The population of the city has increased tenfold since the 1950s, as migrants from across Anatolia have moved in and city limits have expanded to accommodate them. Arts, music, film, and cultural festivals were established towards the end of the 20th century and continue to be hosted by the city today. Infrastructure improvements have produced a complex transportation network in the city with a new world-class airport (IST) added to its infrastructure. .

Istanbul is the European Capital of Culture, making the world's the world's fifth most popular tourist destination. The city's biggest attraction is its historic center, partially listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its cultural and entertainment hub is across city's natural harbor, the Golden Horn, in the Beyoğlu district. Considered as a global city, Istanbul has one of the fastest-growing metropolitan economies in the world. It hosts the headquarters of thousands of Turkish companies and media outlets and accounts for more than a quarter of the country's gross domestic product. Hoping to capitalize on its revitalization and rapid expansion, Istanbul has bid to host Summer Olympics five times during the last twenty years.

If the world had been one country, most likely Istanbul would have been chosen as its “Global Capital” considering richness of its history and location between Asia and Europe.
