~ Redefining Management Education ~

ASAC 2013 is going to be hosted in Calgary, AB, Canada, by Mount Royal University. The conference theme, Redefining Management Education, is offered as the underpinning of the deliberations. It intends to promote a healthy discussion of how business programs may contribute to the formation of skilled and socially conscious future managers.

Calgary is the heart of the new West in Canada. It is a cosmopolitan city, characterized by its entrepreneurial spirit and can-do attitude. June in Calgary will offer you a vibrant cultural city and will also open the doors to the majestic Canadian Rockies, one and a half hour drive from downtown Calgary.

The conference will happen in the beautiful Hyatt Regency Hotel, in downtown Calgary, in its world-class conference facilities. Accessing Calgary is very convenient through the numerous direct flights from all major Canadian and American cities, and large European hubs: London, Frankfurt and Amsterdam.
