IT&FA is a multi-disciplinary association that welcomes scholars and professionals from economics and finance, as well as all other areas of business, law, communications and other disciplines with an interest in globalization and the global economy.

     We want this to be the website to go to find out the latest information on our annual conference and also to be a meeting place for professionals of similar interest to meet and post interesting views of current events.

     IT&FA was founded in 1990 by a prestigious group of academics and professionals who believed that the study of "international" issues had not received the emphasis and attention that it should in colleges and universities.Many of these scholars wrote textbooks and journal articles that helped to shape theory and policy throughout the world.

   Currently, the Association has professional members in over 30 countries. These include Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Iran, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and the United States. Thirty years later, there are still some of the original founding members and many others who attend year after year.

ITFA members welcome you to join our helpful, open group to further intellectual thought and policy concerning the international trade, finance, and other aspects of business in a global economy. Friendships develop that bring us back year after year. Come, join ITFA!
