Hypothetical: The Case for an Australian "Group of Seven"
Turner, Michael; Brown, Alistair
Australian Universities' Review, v55 n2 p44-50 2013
This paper examines the hypothetical cost-savings that might ensue from a merger of most of Australia's major research universities. The results of the textual analysis show that a merger of these universities has the potential to reduce expenses and professional and support staff salaries, increase comprehensive income returns and improve accountability. The use of combination reporting also helps unify the presentation of the financial accounts of these prestigious universities which could greatly assist its stakeholders in making key financial decisions.
