The main aim of this partnership is to encourage teacher-researchers, executives and business leaders to publish management books on a large scale to better equip business school and university students.
On this occasion, we are launching a call for manuscripts within the framework of this partnership for all teacher-researchers and anyone wishing to publish a textbook.
We will also create a collection of biographies of business leaders and we are launching a call for manuscripts to all business leaders wishing to publish a bio on the adventures of launching their businesses.
The Supdeco group positions itself among the very first in Africa to sell on the market this new activity which will bring a very large international visibility to African authors.
