Abstract: This research is aimed to perform a comprehensive literature review of articles on the use of seminars for teaching and learning in the higher education. The review was performed using 68 relevant studies on seminars in the teaching and learning across various disciplines. The review first considered articles on the higher education, business and management and other very close disciplines including social science and engineering. We then performed the synthesis and discussions of the facts emerging from these studies to answer some of the relevant questions including why seminars are used, how they are conducted, how they are beneficial to participants and academic institutions, and challenges associated to conducting them. Based on the endorsements from the extant literature from business and management and other contemporary disciplines, we also provide recommendations for using it in the business and management discipline.
