FACULTY OF MANAGEMENT AND SOCIAL SCIENCE ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Date: July 30- August 3, 2018

Theme: Entrepreneurship For Economic Development

Background

While the concept of entrepreneurship or self employment is not entirely strange in Nigeria, it has become more widespread in recent times. Several nations across the globe have stressed the importance of entrepreneurship as the backbone of any economy. A careful nurture and investment in Nigerian entrepreneurs will significantly reduce unemployment and generate wealth, which will in turn boost the economy’s GDP.

However, Nigeria’s entrepreneurial landscape suffers from inadequate funding and necessary infrastructural support which is limiting creativity and growth.

At this conference, academics, economists, financial, business and MSME stakeholders will deliberate on how to significantly improve entrepreneurship in Nigeria. They will also suggest policies required for SME fundings and enabling environment.

Conference Sub-themes:

  • Theoretical Considerations in Entrepreneurship and Development
  • Skill Acquisition, Empowerment and Entrepreneurial development
  • Uncertainties and Risk Management in Entrepreneurship
  • Security Issues and Successful Entrepreneurship
  • The Role of Accounting in Entrepreneurial Development
  • Funding of Entrepreneurs

  • Agro-Preneurship in National Development
  • Women Empowerment in Entrepreneurship
