About Us

Centre for Business Policy Research (CBPR) is a university wide academic research centre which engages scholars and business people to analyze different business and public policies to bridge the gap between empirical research and policy implementation. The centre also engages the stakeholders to examine relevant emerging burning issues and to provide suggestions or recommendations to the policy makers.Through conducting researches, round table discussions, press releases, special quarterly publications, developing online content, forums, and seminars, the centre tries to improve the understanding of general public about the policy issues, their implementations, and outcomes.

Rather than constraining itself into research activities in policy formulation, CBPR diversifies its use of intellectual resources by arranging different short term training programs in areas ranging from Corporate Grooming to Industrial Engineering as well as organizing multi-stakeholder consultations. Centre for Business Policy Research (CBPR) is organizing its 1st Independent Global Conference on Business & Economics 2016. . This year’s theme is:
