Annual Conference on Business Economics (ACBE)

The Department of Business Economics has taken numerous efforts to develop its research culture among students as well as academics since its inception in 2002. As a result of this, the Annual Conference on Business Economics (ACBE) was inaugurated in 2020 and it provides a scholarly platform for the Business Economics students as well as the members of the Department to share and discuss different viewpoints on contemporary economic issues at both the local and global levels. The main objective of the ACBE is to enrich and inculcate the research culture among the students of the department. This is an annual event of the Department and the other objectives of the conference are as follows.

  • To bring together all other Business Economics students (undergraduate and postgraduate) in the university system to share their knowledge
  • To encourage students to address the needs and demands of the country in fostering academic research
  • To provide an interdisciplinary platform for the policy makers, top managers, researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and contemporary issues in the field of Business Economics
