Conf announcement and Call for Papers Corporate Finance April 26_27 2016The Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) and the Swedish House of Finance (SHoF) are pleased to invite interested academics and others to the first SSE/SHoF Corporate Finance Symposium on April 26-27, 2016 at Fotografiska in Stockholm. The conference is jointly organized with McKinsey & Company and Mannheimer Swartling Associates.
Corporate finance has been one of the most active areas of research in finance over the last few decades, but much of this research has had limited impact on corporate finance practice in many areas. An important goal of this conference is to bring together top academics and prominent practitioners working in corporate finance in order to create a lively forum for exchanging ideas in this field. The theme of this year’s conference is “Mergers and Acquisitions”.
The first conference day is targeted both towards academics and practitioners, and will focus on two themes within the general topic of M&A: “Programmatic M&A strategies”, where keynote speeches will be given by Gordon Phillips (Professor, Univ. of Southern California) and Moni Miyashita (Senior Advisor, McKinsey & Co); and “De-Biasing M&A Decision Making,” with keynote speakers Ulrike Malmendier (Professor, Berkeley) and Rima Qureshi (Chief Strategy Officer, Ericsson).
