Wagner College is renowned for its curriculum which focuses on the Practical Liberal Arts. The Business Administration program emphasizes practical applications of business theories, and the conference will focus on current business issues. Participants are invited to give presentations on any practical aspects of current business issues within the African continent.

The conference will gather business leaders, NGO leaders, researchers, and students from African countries, from Wagner College, and from the local New York City community to present information on the current state of business in African countries. Issues discussed will revolve around the reciprocal impact of businesses, government, and society. Participants will interact with the Wagner community and participate in campus life. The conference goal is to create long-term collaborative relationships between business leaders, faculty, students, and community members from African countries, the Wagner community, and the New York City community. The impetus of the conference is the discussions held at UNCTAD 14 (United Nations Conference on Trade and Development) in Nairobi, Kenya in July, 2016 which Professor Shani D. Carter of Wagner College attended.
