The University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona School of Business and Management (MSBM) is now preparing to host its International Business Management Conference from July 10-12 at the Jamaica Pegasus hotel in Kingston.
This year's theme is 'Delivering on the Promise of Entrepreneurship: Critical Perspectives on Research, Practice, and Thinking in the Fourth Economy'.
“I want us all to realise that when we speak of social entrepreneurship, that we have all benefited from the kindness and hard work and progression of people,” said executive director of MSBM, Dr David McBean, at a recent press briefing to officially launch the conference.
Dr McBean indicated that MSBM is pleased to hold a conference that seeks to develop, promote and harvest the true potential of Jamaican entrepreneurs.
“Mona School of Business Management is mindful of its role in fostering the development of this Fourth Economy, by providing a space for constructive dialogue towards identifying challenges and related solutions, as well as by generating critical research, knowledge and training as it relates to Jamaica and other small island developing states,” said Dr McBean.
The director then acknowledged that within society there are unequal opportunities and chances, however, in an interview with the Business Observer, he said that MSBM always aims to not only provide solutions and knowledge to the business community, but to the wider society in general.
He added that as the university is publicly funded, informing and contributing to nation-building is what MSBM considers as its outreach directive.
