Global Business Research Symposium: The future of business

Global Business Research Symposium: The Future of Business: Technology, Innovation and Regulation

Tomorrow it will be held the 13th Annual Conference, at St. John’s University, Via Marcantonio Colonna, 21A, 00192, Rome, Italy. The conference has been organized by St. John’s University’s Peter J. Tobin College of Business and a diverse group of international scholars and Universities.

The Global Business Research Symposium originated from the Financial Services Institute (FSI) at the Peter J. Tobin College of Business (TCB), St. John’s University in New York. The FSI was founded in 1995 to provide an educational and research facility dedicated to the advancement of business and financial knowledge through research in a global setting.  The annual symposia were started by the late Donald Pitti (ex-CEO Seligman) and Igor Tomic, Professor of Economics at the TCB, St. John’s University. I. Hilmi Elifoglu and Ivan Abel of TCB joined the Executive Committee soon afterwards and last year Joan Ball and David Chan joined as well.

The main purpose of the symposia has always been to assist those who present papers by creating a genuine atmosphere of friendly collaboration and welcoming environment for sharing research and establishing networks across disciplines and borders.

The news for this year is that it has been organized a panel on fintech and insurtech linking academics and industry folks.
