Welcome to the Home Page of the Mountain Plains Business Association. The Association was created 56 years ago to provide scholars and researchers from the Mountain Plains region of the United States a vehicle for sharing their thoughts and ideas with academic colleagues.  While there is a core of five host institutions who rotate the hosting assignments of the annual conference, members come from over 100 colleges and universities nationwide and overseas. 

The annual conference of the MPBA is a gathering of scholars and other interested parties who share research and discuss relevant and contemporary issues in all areas of business. Topics of discussion include Management, Marketing, Economics, Accounting, Finance, Business Law, International Business, Information Systems, and other business-related areas.

The Journal of the  is housed at Southern Utah University. The annual conference, however, is hosted by a different institution each year.

The 2014 Global MPBA Conference will be held at Idaho State University in Pocatello.  The Conference Chair is Dr. Jim Frost (frosjame@isu.edu). The Call For Papers is here.  Papers should be submitted to Professor Grey Ray (raygreg@niatec.isu.edu).  All conference information, including details on submission guidelines, registration procedures, and conference details can  be found at the conference website above. 

The conference has a long tradition, dating back many decades. The gathering is informal, and presentations include everything from publishable articles and formal papers to discussion-oriented abstracts. A high degree of collegiality exists, and many long-term friendships are created as a result from attending the annual conferences.

The Mountain Plains Journal of Business and Economics, begun in 1999, is a refereed journal included in Cabell's annual edition of academic journals. Any person interested in submitting a paper for consideration to the Journal is encouraged to visit the Journal's homepage for further information.
