We are pleased to announce the 14th Annual International Management Conference that is organised by the School. MUBS is the premier institution in research and business practices in the country. It addresses problems of business start up, improvement and survival through small business development and management training programmes.The Conference attracts leading scholars, consultants and business people in the region and will be a 3 day event that addresses topical business, management and economic issues. It will be held between November 24-26, 2009 in Kampala-Uganda. The Conference theme is “Trading Out Of Poverty under the Current Economic Crisis; Strategies”
The global financial crisis, brewing for a while, really started to show its effects in the middle of 2007 and into 2008. Around the world, stock markets have fallen, large financial institutions have collapsed or been bought out, and governments in even the wealthiest nations have had to come up with rescue packages to bail out their financial systems.
On one hand many people are concerned that those responsible for the financial problems are the ones being bailed out, while on the other hand, a global financial meltdown will affect the livelihoods of almost everyone in an increasingly inter-connected world. Could the problem have been avoided?
The conference under the theme “Trading out of poverty in the current global economic crisis; Strategies” will address issues causing and arising from the financial crisis and its impact especially on developing countries and strategies on how countries can deal with the recession.
Authors should explore the following major areas for discussion and presentation but specifically focusing Africa’s plight under the recession.
