Dear SPACE members,
I have the privilege to invite you to the SPACE conference, which will be held in Kolding from April 24 till 26th April 2018.
As the President of the IBA International Business Academy, it is a great honour to host this event of the SPACE network of higher education institutions.
The conference theme “Fostering social impact by linking HEI research to entrepreneurship” is very much in line with IBAs approach to stimulate entrepreneurial synergies, while functioning as an integrated knowledge partner in the local public and business environment.
We are open for new ideas and experiences within this field and we are looking forward to discuss our approach with you.
IBA has been a member of the SPACE community for several years now and through this international network, we have found both inspiration and project partners. The SPACE Conference settings offers you great opportunities to connect with new people and to gain insight and update your knowledge in different areas, through meetings with colleagues, researchers and keynote speakers.
So please join the conference, build new relations and enjoy your visit in Kolding and the Region of Southern Denmark.
Our school has around 4,700 students – represented by 1,500 full time students and 3,200 students on the professional development courses. All supported by 120 permanent staff members and 80 freelance teachers and lecturers. We offer higher education programs at AP, Professional Bachelor and Master’s levels, within areas such as finance, sales and marketing, communication, technology and web, production and management, amongst others.
IBA connects with over 85 universities and institutions across the globe, from overseas or far-flung countries such as China, South Korea, Brazil and America, to European countries such as England, France, Spain and Romania.
We are active members of the Network of International Business Schools (NIBS). Study trips, student and employee exchanges, as well as conferences and development projects, are all organized through this network of international partners. IBA students also take part in international case competitions.
IBA also host IBA Confucius Classroom (IBACC). IBACC was established in October 2015 between Shanghai Lixin University of Accounting and Finance and IBA International Business Academy.
The IBACC is supported by the Confucius Institute Headquarters in Beijing, China.
The aim of IBACC is to strengthen educational and business cooperation between China and Denmark, as well as to support and promote the development of Chinese language education.
