Research Discussions with University of Wollongong

Day Eight

On the last day of ARI visits to Australia, Prof Dr Normah and Dr Roszana went to the University of Wollongong, some 200 km away from Sydney. The University of Wollongong is a garden campus, with green trees everywhere and the campus has been very beautifully landscaped. The University of Wollongong was among the first university in the world that started its forensic accounting programs. Currently the university offers both undergraduate and post-graduate programmes to both fulltime and part-time students. At Wollongong, ARI researchers met up with Associate Professor Mary Kaidonis, Head, School of Accounting and Finance and two other officers - Ms Tina and Ms Angie. At the meeting, it was decided that Potential ARI-Wollongong collaborations include research, teaching of forensic accounting programs, joint-conferences and the publication of special-issue journal in the area of Forensic Accounting and Financial Criminology. Currently, the university publishes an international indexed journal - Australasian Accounting, Business and Finance Journal (AABFJ). Two joint research proposals will be prepared and discussed by researchers of both universities with possible preliminary findings to be presented at the University of Wollongong's February 2012 conference. A very fruitful visit indeed.....
