As a leading business conference in the region, the ICBM continues to raise the bar yearly at each conference, organized under a pertinent theme, instigating a timely dialogue between the academia, the practitioners and the industry. It is a great opportunity to present and listen to presentations of highest academic standards, with insights from diverse attendees and to publish in internationally distinguished journals.

The ICBM is annually organized by the Faculty of Management Studies and Commerce, which is one of the largest business and management faculties in Sri Lanka. It is truly exemplary of the role an academic institute should play as a center that blends the finest in theory and practice and fosters interactions between the University and the wider community. Also, as a leading business conference in the Asian region, it maintains the best academic standards and thus offers an ideal opportunity for researchers to publish their work in renowned journals both nationally and internationally.

As the Center of Excellence in Management Education in Sri Lanka, the FMSC is proud to host its annual conference; the ICBM for the 20th consecutive time as the most elevated event of the faculty calendar, since the FMSC is committed to high-quality teaching and research by promoting an intellectually stimulating multidisciplinary environment. This year, the theme of the conference is carefully selected depending on the contemporary socio-economic context, encouraging academia and practitioners to present their scholarly work and to link with industry to find solutions to the new challenges. The theme of the 20th ICBM is “Resilience and Reinvention for Sustainable Development in the VUCA world.”

Thus, the ICBM is renowned as one of the best international conferences in the region that continues to promote an intellectually stimulating multi-disciplinary environment through influential industry and community engagement.

I hope this unique international and multidisciplinary conference will provide our participants with a truly transformative experience through a variety of knowledge and perspectives.
