The Asian Forum on Business Education (AFBE) was established late in 1992 as a mutual self-help group of business schools in – or interested in Asia. These schools all wanted to improve the quality of business education they provide. They consider co-operation and collaboration with like-minded business schools in other countries to be critical, particularly in relation to international business. This forum conducts International conference every year. The purpose of the conference is to consider the need for, and possible establishment of, a group to assist in this internationalization of business education in Asia.
After the hit of Asian Economic Crisis in 1997/1998, the Asian economy has recovered and some countries have shown relatively high economic growth. However, in 2007/2008 the global economic crisis that started in USA cannot be avoided and finally has influenced the Asian economy. Some businesses received the impacts and become collapsed, especially the financial sector.
