           4th Annual EDINEB International Conference

       EDucational INnovation in Economics and Business:
       Educating Entrepreneurship for the Information Age

                     September 1 - 3, 1997
             Napier University, Edinburgh, Scotland
            Under the Auspices of the EDINEB Network
Educating Entrepreneurship for the Information Age

Managing  change  in the university curriculum is regarded  as  a
major challenge now that we are moving into the information  age.
Universities are put under pressure to adapt curricula to  chang-
ing societal demands, preparing our students for the  Information
Age.  Orientation to information technology and information  sys-
tems  is  viewed as one of the new objectives for  academic  pro-
grams.  Educational  innovations are  targeting  at  transforming
faculty  from  teachers  to managers in  learning  processes,  in
introducing information and learning technologies, and at design-
ing relevant programs by developing corporate partnerships.  What
are the implications for business and managerial education?  What
role  should economics play in business curricula? What  kind  of
methods  and approaches are available to transform economics  and
business education?

This 1997 International Conference of EDINEB will bring  faculty,
instructors, trainers, practising managers, development  officers
and graduate students from around the world to share research and
information about innovative business education.  The  conference
will  be  an exceptional opportunity to collaborate  and  network
with others interested in this subject area. As past  conferences
have centred predominately on business and management  education,
the  format of the 1997 conference is likely to include a  number
of extra sessions focusing on new approaches to economics  educa-

Suggested themes for paper presentations, as well as  interactive
workshops, demonstrations and round-table discussions, are:

*  Educating Economics of Entrepreneurship
*  New Economics for the Information Age
*  Transitional Economics
*  Teaching Relevant Economics for the Business World
*  Training Students in Issues of Local Economic Development
