About the event

Since 2016, the annual MARC conference has brought together cutting-edge research and practice on M&A by leading professors and industry experts around the world. Topics span a broad array of issues related to M&A such as deal structure from financing to integration, activism, regulatory changes, domestic and cross border transactions and corporate social responsibility among others. The conference was held in cooperation with the European Corporate Governance Institute (ECGI). We are honoured to have many world-leading academic experts in the field of M&A serving in our programme committee.

The MARC conference is among the most selective high-quality conferences in the field. The papers presented at the conference are at the forefront of knowledge and of high academic rigour, as evidenced by a high acceptance rate in the top three academic journals in accounting and finance. As of January 2021, four out of eight papers presented at the first conference in 2016 have been published in the Journal of Finance and the Review of Financial Studies. Four out of seven papers presented at the second conference in 2017 have been published in the Journal of Financial Economics, the Review of Financial Studies, and the Journal of Accounting Research.
