The 42nd Atlantic Schools of Business Conference is hosted by Dalhousie University’s School of Business in Halifax, Nova Scotia, September 28–30, 2012. The theme of this year’s conference is “Business as Usual?

Credit agencies tell us that, from Greece to the United States, government debt is at risk of default. The recovery from the recent recession appears to have stalled. Financial markets are in turmoil. Firms face cutbacks. Employees face layoffs. Pension funds face shortfalls. Consumer spending is down and resource costs are up. These conditions are ‘business as usual’ for much of Atlantic Canada.

ASB welcomes academic papers and proposals for symposia. Present your ideas and find out what other Atlantic business academics have to say about doing business under these conditions at the 2012 ASB.

ASB President
