Welcome to the official website of the Global Conference on Business and Economics (GLOBE 2019), which will be held during September 30 – October 3, 2019 at the Bahcesehir University (BAU) campus in Istanbul, Turkey. GLOBE 2019 aims to bring together researchers, scientists, scholar and scholar students to exchange and share their experiences, new ideas, and research results about all aspects of business and economics research and discuss the practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted. English is the official language of the conference. We welcome paper submissions.

GLOBE Conferences are organized by Association of North America Higher Education International (ANAHEI) and sponsored by University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee, Florida, USA and Bahcesehir University (BAU), Istanbul, Turkey. The slogan “At the heart of Istanbul” is suitable for a university like Bahcesehir University (BAU). With its main campus on the edge of the Bosphorus in Besiktas each day begins early with rapid mobility and continues throughout the day. Moreover, it is possible to encounter an event at almost every part of the university.

The conference will be held in Istanbul, Turkey. With a population of 15.03 million, Istanbul is one of the oldest cities of the world. Istanbul is also only city in the world that sits on two continents, Europe and Asia. Strategically located on the Bosphorus peninsula between the Balkans and Anatolia, the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, Istanbul was successively the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire, and the Ottoman Empire and has been associated with major events in political history, religious history and art history for more than 2,000 years. The city is situated on a peninsula which is surrounded by the Golden Horn (Haliç), a natural harbor on the north, the Bosphorus on the east and the Marmara Sea on the south. The Historic Peninsula, on which the former Byzantium and Constantinople developed, was surrounded by ancient walls, built initially by Theodosius in the early fifth century. The Historic Areas of Istanbul include monuments recognised as unique architectural masterpieces of Byzantine and Ottoman periods such as Hagia Sophia, which was designed by Anthemios of Tralles and Isidoros of Miletus in 532-537.
