Middlesex University Dubai takes great pleasure in announcing the Third International Conference on Emerging Research Paradigms in Business and Social Sciences (ERPBSS-2015). For the nearly 200 delegates representing about 100 international academic institutions the First (2011) and Second (2013) International Conference on ERPBSS provided a forum for inter-disciplinary dialogue and forms of scholastic communication that transcended disciplinary and subject-specific boundaries. In the Third International Conference ERPBSS 2015 we seek to explore “What’s Next?”. The world faces incredibly complex changes that shape our collective futures. We live in a time of increased mobility and connectedness, as forces of globalization and technological change are redefining the economic, social, political, and physical systems of the world. Inevitably, ideas and knowledge are transcending their traditional disciplinary and geographic boundaries. While this transformation offers increasing opportunities for innovation, it also contributes to increasingly complex global and local challenges that must be met with increasing attention to a more sustainable future.

The eight tracks of the ERPBSS 2015 conference seek to bring together perspectives from multiple disciplinary and epistemological perspectives. The design of the conference will provide wider opportunities for dialogue than conferences with narrower scope. 

Conference Rationale and Objective

The overarching objective of the ERPBSS conferences is to provide an opportunity for academics to discuss new concepts, progressive methodologies, embryonic approaches and innovative practices within the wider areas of Business, Law, Media, and Social Science research.  It has been widely recognized that a substantial number of complex issues researchers aim to address necessitate contributions beyond any one discipline.  Social enquiry does not happen in isolation, therefore it is crucial that researchers gain an understanding of the wider contexts and alternative lenses through which phenomena occur.


Conference Tracks

The conference will focus on the following tracks:

  1. Accounting, Finance, and Economics
  2. Contemporary Psychology
  3. Education, Training, and Development
  4. Information and Communication Technology
  5. International Law and International Relations
  6. Management and Marketing
  7. Media, Journalism, and Communication
  8. Tourism and Hospitality


Original research papers dealing with the above mentioned components/topics of the Conference tracks are invited. Kindly note that the topics listed under each track are to be interpreted broadly and the list is indicative and not exhaustive.
