M&A Research Centre - ECGI Series

M&A Research Centre - ECGI Series

The Mergers and Acquisitions Research Centre (MARC) Conference was held in 2021 and will be held in 2022 in cooperation with the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI).

Background:

Since 2016, our annual MARC 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 has been 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.

Our 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 three academic journals in accounting and finance. As of January 2021, four out of eight papers presented at our first conference in 2016 have been published in the Journal of Finance and the Review of Financial Studies. Four out of seven papers presented at our second conference in 2017 have been published in the Journal of Financial Economics, the Review of Financial Studies, and the Journal of Accounting Research.
