GMARS aims to promote a ‘global village’ of management accounting research by bringing together a diverse set of the highest quality research papers, plenary speakers and researchers from around the world. It provides an important intellectual space to appreciate and understand the theoretical perspectives and research methods that are used to study management accounting practices. GMARS is held annually, rotating around the world between the partner institutions – UNSW, Copenhagen Business School and Michigan State University.

The first Global Management Accounting Research Symposium (GMARS) was held at Michigan State University in June 2004 and GMARS has since rotated around the world hosted by the 3 partner institutions (Michigan State University, Copenhagen Business School and UNSW).

Participants will present a brief overview of their dissertation topic (10-15 minutes), followed by about 30 minutes of discussion from the floor.

Each session will be attended by a number of senior faculty members as well as other doctoral students. Senior faculty members for 2023 will include:
