Guest Editor:
Dr. Vandana Ahuja, Jaypee Business School, India

The business world is advancing swiftly and continuously as a result of technological innovation. This special issue aims to disseminate information pertaining to the most recent trends, concerns and practical challenges encountered in the field of business and management and the solutions adopted. It seeks papers exploring upcoming new age business practices and the changes technology has brought about in the way organisations function, and attempts to serve as a platform for information exchange on contemporary interests and concerns.

The special issue will have diverse coverage across several fields related to management and technology, thus creating an interdisciplinary environment for academic and pragmatic debates.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Advances in Management and Technology in a Global World 2015, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
