More details




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. The conference was held in cooperation with the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI). We are honoured to have many world-leading academic experts in the field of M&A serving in our programme committee.

The MARC conference is among the most selective high-quality conferences in the field. The papers presented at our conference are at the forefront of knowledge and of high academic rigour, as evidenced by a high acceptance rate in the top academic journals in the field. As of January 2023, ten papers presented at the first three conferences (2016 to 2018) have been published in leading journals including Journal of Political Economy, Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics,  Review of Financial Studies and Journal of Accounting Research.
