PhD Colloquium, PRRES Conference 2008, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Professor Newell’s talk touched on various issues of PhD study particularly on choosing PhD topics, choosing supervisors, time management and other important points on research strategy; all of which were very well received by the PhD students.

The preparation by the students was excellent as evidenced by the comprehensive presentations which attracted interesting questions followed by in-depth discussion which provided useful feedback to the students.

The PRRES Postgraduate Awards were won by :

(a) Hui Hon Chung (University of Nottingham Malaysia) “On the role of real estate markets in Malaysia’s 1997-98 financial crisis: economic history revisited”

(b) Hairulnizam Hashim (Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia) “Trading Volume Determinant Factors of Global Real Estate Investment Trusts over the Period of 1991 to 2007”

It is hoped that more foreign students will be able to participate in future Colloquiums so as to increase the interaction and networking among international students. The Colloquium was able to achieve the objective of providing an excellent platform for postgraduate students to meet with potential supervisors, mentors and examiners.
