2-14-14 - Faculty and doctoral students of the University of Memphis, University of Mississippi, and Mississippi State University have convened once a year for nearly a decade to trade research ideas and hear thoughtful commentary. The event benefits faculty and doctoral students as they improve their understanding of original research, see trends developing in research and business, and develop closer relationships with regional friends and faculty.

This year, we meet on Friday, February 14 from 9:30 am to 4:15pm in McCool Hall on the campus of Mississippi State University.

The schedule will include keynote speaker, Paul Munter, on Friday morning and paper presentations from each school. Paul Munter is well known to accounting faculty and a brief biography of Paul is included below.

So we can plan for your visit, please let MSU's coordinating faculty contact know that you are attending:
