Global Issues in Accounting Conference

Past decades have seen significant growth in international financial market integration and a corresponding increase in the importance of understanding the interactions among disparate political and economic institutions. Researchers in accounting, finance, and economics each focus on different aspects of these global issues. The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers working in these fields to engage in a collaborative discussion of global capital markets research.

Since 2014, the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler School of Business have joined forces to host the Global Issues in Accounting Conference. This year, the conference will be held in the Harper Center at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business on September 6–7, 2019. The conference will begin after lunch on September 6 and end midday on September 7.


The conference speakers are Vivan Fang, Michele Fabrizi, Stefan Zeume, Maximilian Muhn, Katharina Hombach, and Zach Kaplan. Please download the conference papers from this site. No papers will be available at the conference.

Participants will be responsible for transportation to the conference, as well as all hotel and travel expenses. The conference will provide all meals.
