Scientific Coordination: Massimo Sargiacomo, Stefania Servalli
The track intends to explore, in a historical dimension, the role of the Academy of Business Administration and Accountancy, the Schools of Thought, the individual Authors, including both the so-called “Masters” and all the others, considering the impact they have had on the socio-economic context. The value expressed by these various actors in the social, economic, institutional and organisational context should be considered in a broad sense, including the origin and evolution of the Academy, the creation of Colleges and Professional Orders, the contribution of the Schools and their mutual debate, as well as the role played by individual authors.
