The second goal of this international conference relates to bridging the Romanian business environment with the international business environment by ensuring a better understanding of new challenges, opportunities and threats generated by globalization and competition in general and in fields like energy, social entrepreneurship and others.

The third goal is to place in this newly emergent context the architecture of the business administration higher education by championing new and challenging programs meant to equip the students for a more aggressive competitive business ecosystem.
