About AUN-BE

AUN for Business and Economics Network has been established with the main mission to facilitate collaboration among ASEAN universities so as to strengthen education, research, and industry relevance in business and economics for the benefit of ASEAN Economic Community.

The main objectives of AUN-BE:
