Global Business Research Symposium

What We Do

The Global Business Research Symposium (GBRS or Symposium) was originally founded as the Financial Services Institute [FSI] at the Tobin College of Business, St. John’s University in New York in 1995.  In 2006, FSI Directors Don Pitti and Igor Tomic extended the activities of the Institute and formed an international symposium that met annually. As the Symposium addresses issues in all business sciences, in 2013 the Board of Directors changed the name from FSI to the Global Business Research Symposium. See link below for more information on the 2024 GBRS Conference in Rome, Italy, May 22-24.
