Abstract

Dear Colleague in Learning,
We are delighted to present this special issue of the Journal, which features the best papers from the fourteenth Irish Academy Conference which was held at the National College of Ireland, Dublin in September 2011.

The theme of the conference was 'Making a World of Difference: Nation-Building and the Role of Management Education'. This theme was not only reflective of our Jesuitical origins at NCI but was appropriate and contemporary given the changes that we have witnessed in the global economy in the last four years. We believe that the theme appeals to our own scholarship and research interests, and the conference presented an opportunity for the showcasing of the role of academic research in rebuilding and growing sustainable economies. This was an agenda with both national and international appeal. As academics, we do have a responsibility to provide and develop leadership in times of crisis through the education and development of the architects of future economic growth and success. In addition, we play a pivotal role in identifying the road which should be taken in order to guarantee a safe pathway to this growth and success.
