Higher Degree Research EXPO 30th October 2009

EXPO is an event which showcases the work of Higher Degree Research students in the Faculty of Business and Economics. It is a research intensive day bringing together early career researchers, academic colleagues, industry and the general public to promote and advance research.

EXPO is an ideal forum for collaborative, focused discussion on cutting-edge research.

The day provides excellent opportunities for prospective PhD students in Accounting & Corporate Governance, Applied Finance & Actuarial Studies, Marketing & Management and Economics to find out about current research topics in the Faculty. Five concurrent sessions run throughout the day, with research candidates giving a 15 minute scholarly presentation followed by 5 minutes for questions, comments and discussion.


In 2009, the Higher Degree Research Expo will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney's CBD.
