Welcome to the Southwestern Business Administration Teaching Conference. The conference will be held at the Jesse H. Jones School of Business at the Texas Southern University (TSU). We will be making arrangements for free parking on campus.

At the conference, each of the presentation rooms will have a PC computer, projector, clicker and a laser pointer. If you bring your presentation in a flash drive then it can be transferred to the computer. If you have a Mac, then there will be an adaptor cable to project your presentation.

We plan to produce a Conference Proceedings after the conference. The Southwestern Business Administration Journal Editorial Board will select five papers from the conference and invite them to submit the paper for the journal. Such papers will go through a simple review for style and accuracy. All authors will be expected to sign the Copyright Form.
