The department actively pursues excellence in academic research, and the strategy is to incentivise and guide the research pipeline towards the quality-end of UK-ABS3 [Australian ABDC-A] or above journals.
Our research covers all major areas in finance. We run a fortnightly PhD/brown-bag workshop series, which serves as a collegial yet intense platform for PhD students and research-active academics to interact on research work. We also host regular research seminars and workshops featuring research-active scholars from China and overseas.
