Multimedia University (MMU) had successfully hosted the Journal of Contemporary Accounting and Economics (JCAE) Doctoral Consortium and Annual Symposium recently. This event was co-organised with three other universities namely Deakin University, Hong Kong Polytechnic University and University of Technology Sydney. Participants from all over the globe such as Australia, New Zealand, Korea, Singapore, Canada, China and The United States attended the 3 days event.

The Doctoral Consortium provides an opportunity for students to present their proposals and interact with renowned professors of international standing. The Symposium, on the other hand, provides a platform for accounting, economics and corporate governance academics to present cutting-edge research findings and to exchange insightful perspectives.

The outcome of this symposium provides an opportunity for scholars to get together and exchange new ideas as well as research collaborations that address management accounting, governance or financial reporting issues pertinent to the evolving and changing global economic environments including Malaysian perspectives. YBhg Dato’ Yusli (President, Malaysian Institute of Corporate Governance) and Mr Yee Wing Peng (Country Managing Partner, Deloitte Malaysia) graced the event with their presence to share the industry viewpoint, which leads to exciting discussions that promise to generate ideas for future research.
