Iliyas Yusoff

PhD candidate

Research focus: Financial accounting
and international finance

Monash Business School has an excellent global reputation in accounting research, with a fivestar ERA rating, and world-class academics, which really appealed to me as the number of potential supervisors was endless. I had my first taste of research during my Honours year at Monash, and chose to continue on with a PhD as it gave me the opportunity to transition to a career as a teacher and researcher.

My PhD experience has been incredibly positive, largely thanks to the quality of my supervisors, who have constantly encouraged me to explore my interests and discuss my ideas. I have presented at conferences and doctoral symposiums, which have provided me with invaluable feedback on my research and given me the opportunity to network with other researchers.

While the Accounting Doctoral program is challenging, I’ve found it to be extremely rewarding.
