3rd PhD Accounting and Finance Symposium held by Monash University, the University of Leeds and the Amsterdam Business School builds on its tremendous success in 2008 and 2009.  The Symposium, held over two days at the Monash Centre in Prato, Italy, is exclusively focused on mentoring doctoral students who have either successfully completed their probationary candidature or the student's research is advanced enough to constitute a concrete research proposal with some preliminary results.  Ideal participants are typically, but not exclusively, one year away from completing their theses in one of the following areas:

Accounting information and capital markets

Asset pricing

Alternative investments


Banking and financial instruments

Behavioural accounting and finance research

Capital structure and dividend policy

Corporate governance

Funds management

Introduction if IFRS and global accounting

Market microstructure


The symposium provides an opportunity for PhD students to present their research to an international audience outside their University environment and gain valuable feedback on their work.
