United Kingdom, August 2009 – Emerald Group Publishing Limited has partnered with Consejo Latinoamericano de Escuelas de Administración (CLADEA). Both parties will be working together on a number of initiatives to promote management research, education and practice in the Latin America region.
CLADEA based in Lima, Peru (at Universidad ESAN), is the Latin American Council of Management Schools and is one of the world’s biggest networks of business schools with over 140 institutions as members. Created for the purpose of furthering the advancement of professional management, CLADEA has been active, for a continuous period of over 40 years
John Peters, Chief Executive of Emerald, comments: “CLADEA’s mission to encourage better teaching, research and management in Latin American business schools and businesses is one which may prove to be significant to the global economy, as well as being vital for managers and researchers in Latin America. We are pleased and honoured to support this mission. We would encourage anyone with an interest in business education and development in Latin America to join with CLADEA in this drive for improvement and development.”
As the world’s leading publisher of management research, Emerald plays an active role in fostering an ecology of knowledge, facilitating the production and dissemination of knowledge on a global scale.
This partnership has been created through discussion and deliberation between Dr. Jorge Talavera, Executive Director of CLADEA and Emerald and will present many opportunities to develop an international network of research in Latin America. In particular, Emerald and CLADEA will collaborate on a journal, to be published both in English and Spanish, whose main focus will be the advancement of good management for the benefit of education, research and practice for businesses and social organizations throughout Latin American.
