Lebanese American University Beirut, Lebanon Volume 2 of 2 i    Preface This volume contains the proceedings of the 2013 Academy for Global Business Advancement (AGBA’s) 10th World Congress held at the King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang (Thailand) on June 15---17, 2013.

Papers selected for presentation at the Congress and for inclusion in these Proceedings have been double-blind peer-reviewed and explore the cutting edge of knowledge and theory in their respective research domains and disciplines.

These proceedings are edited by David McArthur, Utah Valley University (USA), Rajan Varadarajan, Texas A&M University (USA), and Zafar U. Ahmed (Lebanese American University, Lebanon) assisted with patience, diligence, and professionalism by Silvia Lobendahn at Utah Valley University (USA).

These proceedings are prepared from material supplied by the authors. Editorial license to correct manuscripts is limited by governmental regulations (many academics must file for permission to travel; once a paper is on file, no “refinements” can be made or the permission may be withheld) and original author intent. Manuscripts that were not sent to the editors on time for adequate editing or production may not appear in consistent style or appear at all in the proceedings. In accordance with editorial policy and under space constraints, some sections of text, tables, graphs, figures, or references may have been edited or omitted. In the case of errors, or omissions, please contact the respective author(s) directly.

Copyrights of the papers remain with the author(s) of each article.

Every effort has been made by the editors, publishers and printers of these proceedings to see that no inaccurate data, opinion, or statement appears in the proceedings, but the data and opinions appearing in the articles herein are the responsibility of the author(s). Accordingly, the publishers, printers, editors, and AGBA officials accept no liability Page ii of Volume 2    whatsoever for the consequences of such inaccurate or misleading data, opinion or statement.

The editors of these Proceedings have tried to balance completeness  with the space constraints inherent in a published volume of a global  congress with more than 162 papers. Many authors are enthusiastic  about their work and in that enthusiasm, some, after their papers  were accepted to the conference, did not remember to or respond to  repeated messages to submit final drafts for the proceedings whose  bodies were 10 pages in length. Thus, many papers in these two  volumes have had some sections of text, exhibits, charts, tables, or  references omitted or shortened by the editors for space  considerations.  Working papers and doctoral student papers have been published in  abstract form in latter‐part of Volume 2.    Readers who would like to have complete copies (including any  omitted elements) of any of the papers in these Proceedings are  invited to contact the papers’ authors.

AGBA’s “Global Board of Trustees” would like to recognize the special contribution made by the management team at the MIDAS Communication Ltd, (Thailand) under the dynamic leadership of its Founder, President and CEO (Ms. Karin Lohitnavy) for making this 10th global conference a grand success.





AGBA outsourced the operational side of the conference management for the first time in its history to a nationally acclaimed and well reputed professional event management company (MIDAS Communication Company Ltd, Thailand) to organize its 10th global conference on a professional basis.

MIDAS has done a fabulous job from identifying appropriate sponsors to selecting suitable hotels, from organizing printing of promotional material to producing these proceedings, and from hosting delegates to organizing interesting sightseeing tours.

Hence, while attending your conference, whenever you run into any member of MIDAS Management Team, kindly say “Thank You”.
