2.Conference on African Business, Organisations & Society

Despite the position of the African economy in the global economic system, only very few Universities in the United Kingdom have deliberately recognised African economic development. Therefore this has driven the incentive of introducing a vibrant cluster for African Business, Organisations & Society to solely conduct investigations into the tapping of these potentials and the contribution of Africa to the World economy.    

This is the rationale behind the establishment of the cluster for African Business, Organisations & Society as one of the research centres at the School of Business and Management, Queen Mary University of London.

In order to inaugurate the cluster, there will be a conference on Monday 2 July, 2018 in which we welcome interested academics, professionals, business, civil society organisations, media practitioners and PhD students within and outside Queen Mary University of London to present papers, work in progress or part of their research output/dissertations on any African country or countries.

Themes and Topics

All areas of African economic development such as Accounting, Finance, Economics, Organisations and Management.

Submission Guidelines 

Abstract of between 600-800 words or full papers can be sent to Dr Owolabi Bakre as follows: o.bakre@qmul.ac.uk

Deadline: has now passed.
