The M&A Research Centre at Bayes Business School will be hosting the the 8th Annual Mergers & Acquisitions Research Centre Conference on 18th June.

Since 2016, the annual M&A Research Centre conference has brought together cutting-edge research and practice on M&A by leading professors and industry experts around the world. Topics span a broad array of issues related to M&A such as deal structure from financing to integration, activism, regulatory changes, domestic and cross border transactions and corporate social responsibility among others.

Many papers presented at the conference in previous years have been published in leading journals including such as Journal of Political Economy, Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Review of Financial Studies, Journal of Accounting Research, and Journal of International Business Studies.

The conference includes a keynote speech by a leading M&A practitioner and this year it will be delivered by Yael Selfin, Chief Economist and UK Vice Chair, KPMG.
