Welcome to the
Internet Center for
Management and Business Administration
ICMBA's mission is to provide quality business knowledge resources to a geographically dispersed audience via the Internet. Via this web site, ICMBA publishes articles covering a range of topics in the various subjects of business administration. Over time, the articles will cover both basic and advanced topics, and include frameworks and theories that are useful for solving the more challenging problems of business administration.
The content of this site is designed to be beneficial to both students of business and practicing professionals. Students will find it useful for deepening their understanding of key course topics. We hope that business professionals will find it to be a good reference source, particularly when their library of business books is not easily accessible.
