Research at the Faculty of Management Sciences

The management is cognisant of the lack of research activities in the Faculty and therefore established a research forum for regular (weekly) research seminars to boost the interest of beginners, acknowledge research-active staff and engage in publicising faculty research activities during the year. Faculty of Management Sciences (FMS) organised a successful Research Day and several other activities reported under FMS.
