2020 Cape Town SE Seminar - Information and Application Form

Submitted by AFAM on Fri, 02/07/2020 - 1:15am

We are inviting doctoral students (and interested faculty) to a week-long, intensive social entrepreneurship doctoral seminar. Social entrepreneurship is a vitally important arena of scholarly research and teaching. Doctoral level training is needed to equip researchers in the core concepts and empirical findings of this emerging domain. This seminar involves two of the field’s leading scholars as co-teachers and provides an in-depth survey of recent social entrepreneurship scholarship and its theoretical background. It has been taught at different universities in the United States, including Harvard, and will now be offered for the first time in South Africa. More information about the seminar, in general, is available at

Call for Papers - SAJBM Women in Business in Africa

Submitted by AFAM on Thu, 02/06/2020 - 1:14am

The South African Journal of Business Management (SAJBM) has been disseminating research that has real significance for management and leadership theory and practice. The focus of the journal falls into two categories within the business environment, namely managerial and leadership theory and management and leadership practice. A review of the articles published in the SAJBM, specifically relating to women employees, managers, leaders and entrepreneurs, revealed that twelve articles were published over a 40 year period, with the first, authored by Sandra van der Merwe and titled “A portrait of the South African woman manager”, appearing in 1979, ten years after the initiation of the SAJBM.
