PhD Colloquium

In conjunction with the 7th International Conference of the Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association (APMAA)which is hosted jointly by APMAA and Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), a PhD Colloquium is held today. Professor Dr Paul Scarborough from Brock University, Canada gave an interesting keynote speech which implicates the fact that good publications arise from well thought-off research projects. Hence, phd candidates should plan and strategize their research projects in a manner that would result in publication spin-offs. A total of ten papers were presented by ten PhD candidates comprising those from first to final year students. The Accounting Research Institute (ARI) thanks all discussants who took time to review the papers. All in all, the discussants had given some very good feedback for all the papers presented. In fact, the PhD Colloquium 2011 is APMAA's latest initiative for its annual conference activity. More than fifty PhD students attended the one day colloquium held at the Wawasan Room, Universiti Teknologi MARA's beautiful green campus in Shah Alam. Well done all and thank you
