Description: 

The Institute of Accounting and Auditing is offering a Financial Accounting Research Group. This seminar is targeted at interested students which have an active interest in current financial accounting topics and in cutting-edge financial accounting research. The main objective of this seminar is to introduce eligible students to current research in the area of financial accounting and auditing.
In this context, we will provide participants with the necessary skills to comprehend common research design choices and to identify shortcomings of these choices. To achieve this, participants of the seminar will be invited to several lectures, tutorials and talks of international guests, which will take place at the institute. Since it is common to discuss the content of these talks beforehand, participants will also be invited to the corresponding discussion meetings at the institute. Each seminar period will last for one academic year and we expect participating students to commit to the full year. We expect to have around 12 meetings (6 research talks and 6 discussion meetings) scattered throughout the academic year.
A final seminar schedule will be distributed at beginning of each term. The discussion meetings prior academic talks will be arranged on short notice.
Enrolment into the seminar is possible at the beginning of winter or summer term. Students can chose to obtain 6 ECTS by submitting three reviews (or two reviews and a discussion protocol) on papers that are presented throughout the seminar.
The number of participants is limited. Relevant literature and additional material will be announced throughout the seminar.
The number of participants is limited to 8.
An application form will be available on our institute's website approximately two weeks before the term starts. The application period will end on 18 April 2016.

The exact dates will be announced due time.
