The main purpose of this paper is the opinion of university students based on their preference of bank, time consumption, user-friendly service system, service quality, transaction service charge, the security of transactions and fraudulent activities. Both primary and secondary data have been used in this study. A survey has been conducted with 220 respondents, with a majority of male students where most of the respondents said that M-banking companies should provide more options. &nbsp;The majority of the respondents also believe that the company provides adequate security about the transaction process, although many students said that they have faced fraud activities with service. <em>Bkash</em> plays a major role in the market because the maximum number of students used <em>Bkash</em>, followed by <em>Rocket</em>, <em>Nagad</em>, etc. Their major concerns about the service revolve around the charges they have to pay and security issues. As the idea of M-banking is a completely new concept for Bangladesh, the opinions of university students can contribute significantly to helping them improve their service.</p> Syeeda Raisa Maliha Mustafa Nizamul Aziz ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 2020-06-16 2020-06-16 4 2 1 5 10.46281/ijbmf.v4i2.621 Impact of Rewards System on Employee Motivation: A Study of a Manufacturing Firm in Oman https://www.cribfb.com/journal/index.php/ijbmf/article/view/692 <p>This paper illustrates the importance of employee motivation and the influence of reward and recognition program on the motivation and performance of the manufacturing and production workers of a manufacturing firm situated in the Sultanate of Oman.
