3rd MSBM Conference on Business & Management - Driving Transformation: Finance, Enterprise Development & Wealth Creation

Mona School of Business and Management will stage its Conference on Business and Management themed “Driving Transformation: Finance, Enterprise Development & Wealth Creation” on November 8 – 10, 2017 at the Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa, Montego Bay, Jamaica. The 2017 renewal of the MSBM Conference on Business and Management is the third in a series that aims to frame scholars and practitioners as partners in the task of rigorously interrogating the theory and practice of business and management with a particular focus on the challenges faced by businesses in small island developing states. For the third conference the School has decided to focus broadly, on the role and impact of finance in enterprise development, especially in the context of small developing economies.

The tag line “Learning, Knowing, Doing”, signals the role of Mona School of Business and Management in knowledge creation and the application of the resulting scholarship to the everyday challenges of business. The theme for the 3rd conference: Driving Transformation – Finance, Enterprise Development and Wealth Creation, signals the desire to explore the connection between finance and the other functional areas of business and enterprise development.
