The 16 to 18  August 2023 will be the 6th  international conference held by the University of Zululand’s Faculty of Commerce, Administration and Law. We are all extremely excited about this event as it finally brings to fruition all that we have tried to accomplish in terms of the proliferation of research within our faculty. The University of Zululand is a rural-based University situated in the heartland of Zululand, where the internationally renowned Zulu nation emanates from. This conference which is themed: Management, Business, Administration and Legal Initiatives or MBALI is the beginning of great things for our faculty and the University community.
It is envisaged that many consecutive conferences will follow, each with a relevant and contemporary theme.

The event promises to provide academic stimulation for academics from around the globe, all presenting their research papers on varied topics of interest.
