We look forward to having you join us at the 2022 Mountain Plains Business Conference held October 13-15 at the University of Nebraska at Kearney campus. Our theme for this 62nd annual conference is RESILIENCE.

Full papers, abstracts, student presentations, and proposals for panel discussions and workshops are welcome and BEST PAPER awards will be recognized.

This is an extremely inclusive conference, so if you have a research project, case study, or just an idea, this conference will provide opportunity for you to gain valuable feedback. Conference activities will also include a fun evening at the World Theater in downtown Kearney, business tours, and the chance to network and make new friends. Here is the conference flyer


The Mountain Plains Business Association (MPBA) holds an annual gathering of scholars and others interested in sharing research and discussing relevant and contemporary issues in all areas of business. The Mountain Plains Business Conference (MPBC) has a long tradition, dating back to 1959. The gathering is relaxed and informal, and presentations include everything from manuscripts ready for journal submission to discussion-oriented abstracts as well as workshops and panel discussions. A high degree of collegiality exists, and many long-term friendships result from the interactions of conference participants. The conference is hosted on a university campus by a different institution each year.
