Executive Vice President, Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association

It is a great pleasure to see our association growing internationally and even accommodating researchers from other areas related to management accounting applications, like finance and management. In the name of the organizing committee, we are pleased to invite you to the APMAA 15th annual conference in Doha that will be hosted by the College of Business and Economics, Qatar University.

Since this is the first time for the APMAA conference to take place in the Gulf cooperation Council (GCC), we are enthusiastic and eagerly working at Qatar University with the APMAA board and international scholars to make the APMAA 2019 conference an international destination for Accounting and Finance scholars.

The main theme of the conference will be “Management Accounting and Finance in the 21st Century: Challenges and Perspectives”. Manuscripts covering any topical area of management accounting and finance will also be welcomed. They can be theoretical, teaching-based or practice-oriented.

The scope of the APMAA 2019 conference will be to celebrate the new theoretical and practical developments in management accounting and managerial finance of the 21st century with particular attention to Asia-Pacific and GCC accounting issues. In fact, the GCC oil-based economy is in transition to a more sustainable knowledge-based economic model. This transformation creates an eager motivation to actively investigate contemporary issues related to management accounting and finance.

We hope the APMAA 2019 conference will be an opportunity for you to have a productive and an unforgettable experience in Doha. Meanwhile, we are looking forward to seeing you in November 2019.

Welcome Message from the Chair of the Board of Directors
of the Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association (APMAA)

 The Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association (APMAA) holds its 15th Annual Conference (APMAA 2019) at Qatar University (OU), in Doha from November 2nd (Saturday) to 5th (Tuesday), 2019. The conference is organized by the College of Business and Economics (CBE), Qatar University, under the leadership of Dr. Khalid Al- Abdulqader and Dr. Mohammed Elgammal, Chairs of the APMAA 2019 Annual Conference Organizing Committee. This is the first time for APMAA to hold its annual conference in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). Established in May 1981, the GCC is a political and economic alliance of six Middle Eastern countries: Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Oman. As everyone knows, Qatar is a high-income economy, backed by the world third-largest natural-gas reserves and oil reserves. The country is classified by the UN as a country of very high human development. Qatar will host the 2022 FIFA World Cup. 

Qatar University is the main state university in Qatar, hosting nine colleges Arts and Sciences, Business and Economics, Education, Engineering, Law, Sharia and Islamic Studies, Pharmacy, College of Health Science, and College of Medicine. QU currently boasts a population of over 20,000 students. The University has a growing number of specialists, Masters and Ph.D. programs, and enjoys multiple significant research successes. In fact, the university ranked at No. 393 in the 2018 QS World University Ranking. We, directors of APMAA, are all excited about having APMAA 2019 at Qatar University, the most respected university in Qatar

The Asia-Pacific Management Accounting Association, founded in 2004, has grown into one of the worlds leading associations of scholars and specialists in the field of management accounting. The main goal of the APMAA annual conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners to exchange theories, ideas, techniques and experiences relating to all aspects of management and business accounting. Our annual conferences provide a very good opportunity for our members to interact face-to-face with experts from all over the world. 

Qatar University applied to be the APMAA 2019 conference venue at the APMAA 2015 board meeting held at Warmadewa University Bali, Indonesia, and we unanimously approved. Immediately after receiving an approval notification, the conference organizing team at the CBE started to prepare for APMAA 2019.  I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the dedication of all organizing team members in making this conference an attractive one. I am confident that the APMAA 2019 conference, with the main theme of the conference, “Management Accounting and Finance in the 21st Century: Challenges and Perspectives, will fascinates participants from all over the world. There is no doubt that the conference in Doha will be one of the most fantastic and impressive meetings in APMAAs history

I am looking forward to seeing you at Qatar University in November 2019.
