The 11th Annual Student Research Forum was held at St. Mary’s University here in Addis Ababa on August 23, 2017. Organized and sponsored by the Research and Knowledge Management Office, SMU, paper presenters at the Forum were drawn from this year’s graduates of first degree programs from diverse universities in Ethiopia. In the annual event, paper presenters came from Addis Ababa University, Ambo University, University of Gondar, Mekelle University and St. Mary’s University. The Forum was meant for creating the platform for novice researchers toward inspiring students who would be tomorrow’s graduates.


At the event, 16 papers were presented covering the disciplines of Agriculture, Economics, Social work and Tourism and Hospitality management followed by active discussions. St. Mary’s organizes one international and three national research events annually.
