Young Accountants’ Research Conference 2020
“Young Accountants’ Research Day”, the first-ever undergraduates’ research forum convened by the Department of Accounting, in its 28 years of history was held on 11th March 2020 at the university premises. This event was conducted with the noble motive of inculcating and promoting a research culture among the undergraduates of the department.
