TAPMI-CSU International Conference in Finance

The T.A Pai Management Institute (TAPMI) along with the Colorado State University (CSU) invites you to submit papers at its First International Conference in Finance.

Conference Theme: We invite submissions of high-quality papers from scholars conducting research in all areas of finance, including asset pricing, banking, corporate finance, corporate governance, financial institutions and markets and emerging capital markets. Accepted papers are eligible for best paper awards. The awards will be decided by an Awards Committee.

The conference is designed to encourage a high level of interaction among participants to exchange ideas and provide feedback. Papers will be evaluated based on the importance and relevance of the research problem, quality of the research design, use of novel datasets, and their insights and contributions to the academic literature. Each paper will be given 20 minutes for presentation followed by 10 minutes for the discussant and 15 minutes for questions from the audience.

Papers should be well developed, but at a stage where they can still benefit from the discussion at the conference. Please do not submit papers that have been accepted for publication or close to being accepted. Only completed papers will be considered.

The T A Pai Management Institute (TAPMI) located in the international university town of Manipal (Karnataka), is among the leading management institutes in India, and is reputed for its academic rigour and faculty-student interaction. Founded by the visionary, Late Shri. T. A. Pai, TAPMI’s mission is to provide much needed impetus to the task of building professional management capability in the country. In the process, it has also played a role in strengthening the existing educational and health infrastructure of Manipal.

Since commencement of the PG Programme in 1984, TAPMI has received recognition and respect amongst the well-known industrial houses and academic institutions in India for the quality of its education. Over the years, the institute has earned a name for its Post Graduate Programme in Management (equivalent to MBA) and the quality of student talent it has produced. Continuous improvements in the curriculum, structure, academic systems and faculty resources have contributed significantly to making TAPMI a preferred centre for management education. Today, over 3000 TAPMI alumni hold responsible managerial positions in India and abroad.

In early 2009, its 25th year running, TAPMI took a landmark step in its history by shifting its operations to a new scenic 44.11-acres residential campus in Manipal. Located on the side of a hillock and overlooking a valley filled with verdant tropical greenery, this campus provides an ideal setting for serious academic study and creativity, combined with entertainment and relaxation.

The new facility, which was developed at a cost of about Rs. 60 crores (US $ 12 million) includes a built up area of 3,20,000 sq. ft. to house modern, state-of-the-art, Wi-Fi-enabled, air-conditioned classrooms for students, plush offices for faculty and staff, a knowledge centre, a computer centre, a student’s centre, hostels for men and women, and residences for faculty and staff. The student’s centre is home to a canteen, a yoga and meditation room, an mini open-air theatre and a convenience store.
