The East African Business Forum (EABF) is a forum for discussions by corporates, academicians, researchers, practitioners, policymakers and students in the areas of accounting, finance, economics and all the other closely related disciplines. Through its broadly defined scope, we accommodate topics in areas such as entrepreneurship, communication methodologies, interdisciplinary perspectives on management and leadership, marketing and public sector financial management.

The forum provides an outlet for high-quality, refereed, empirical research on all aspects of accounting, finance, marketing, insurance, procurement and supply chain management.

The East African Business Forum is held annually, at the University of Nairobi’s School of Business. It brings together participants from each of the 5 countries which are members of the East African Community, with the aim of updating and informing them on the emerging issues and opportunities.

This year, the forum is being held on 9th and 10th of March, 2016. The theme is: Diffusing the borders: Economic, Political and Cultural Integration for Socio-Economic Development in East Africa.
