Business School Topics
The 29th PhD Conference in Economics and Business is coming to the University of Western Australia from 9-11 November 2016.
The conference is a joint venture between UWA, the Australian National University, the University of Queensland and Monash University – and provides a platform for PhD students to be exposed to a broader group of scholars.
This year, four UWA Business School PhD students will be presenting at the conference. To open the conference, Son Thanh Nguyen will discuss the production network and its impact on international trade, with a comparative look at East Asia and the European Union. On Day two of the conference, Derek Ding will explore Determinants of Dividend, the Impact of Managerial Incentives, and Australian Evidence. Haiyan Liu will discuss the income and price sensitivity of diets globally. Finally, Rebecca Owusu Coffie will present ‘A Scale Adjusted Latent Class Model Application to Understand Small-scale Rice Farmers’ Choices for New Production Technology’.
Over the last 29 years, the Conference has provided the opportunity to gain valuable exposure for, and feedback on, their work to some 800 PhD students from most Australian and New Zealand universities, as well as a number of prominent other institutions such as Chicago, MIT, Queen’s, Cambridge, Oxford and LSE. Major employers of PhDs have sent representatives to these conferences that act as an informal job market. A number of outside bodies also provide sponsorship, including EY, KPMG, the Reserve Bank of Australia and the Australian Government.
All are welcome to attend the conference. For further details, please visit the conference website.
