ALBA has launched in the year 2003 a Seminar Series for Academics and Researchers. The aim of these seminars is to provide a forum for the dissemination of business related research. For presenters, these research seminars provide an eager and open-minded audience, which engages in a dialogue and gives constructive feedback, whilst participants have the opportunity to hear about cutting-edge research in a wide range of business disciplines. The research seminars are held at ALBA on alternate Tuesdays from 4.00-5.30 pm. Occasionally, we schedule additional seminars depending on the availability of speakers. The seminars are open to all academics and researchers.
