Faculty of Business and Communication Studies

2021 National Conference








Virtual Edition, June 1st 2021




As the globe gets attuned to the realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must continue to reflect on the disruptive powers of the most critical health challenge known to humanity in this century. The pandemic has recorded an unprecedented number of causalities, crippled the global economy, imposed existential changes on social relationship and further seeks to determine how life is lived on our planet.

The historic restrictions (physical and social) lockdowns, travel bans, business shutdowns of the pandemic era distressed many individuals and business concerns while windows of opportunities were created for others.

Divergent views continue to emerge over how best to handle the COVID 19 pandemic effects and how to create/construct a strong catalyst for the development of the Nigerian state, cognizant of the fact that it is a country with a plethora of opportunities for economic development.

Such thoughts have propelled the exigencies for the mounting of the 2021 Faculty of Business and Communication Studies’ virtual National Conference on COVID-19 Pandemic: Prospects and Challenges for Socio-Economic Development in Nigeria.

The e-conference is, therefore, aimed at providing opportunities for academics and thinkers from a range of disciplines to share their knowledge and latest research findings.
