The 2021 MIT Asia Conference In Accounting


  • The MIT Asia Conference in Accounting aims to bring together academics and practitioners of accounting and corporate governance in the Asia-Pacific region with leading scholars from the United States, Europe, and beyond.

  • The goal of this annual two-day conference is to incubate and develop rigorous and relevant research in the field of accounting, defined broadly. Through thoughtful and constructive workshops and interactions, the conference expects to encourage and facilitate researchers in Asia to employ the highest standards of academic diligence in addressing challenges that are topical to managers, investors, regulators, and/or market intermediaries such as auditors and analysts. Over time, the conference hopes to become a preeminent forum for cutting-edge accounting research in Asia.



The MIT Asia Conference in Accounting will be held virtually for 2021, with more details to be released as this new format develops. We look forward to seeing all attendees in person during the 2022 conference!
