Aims
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
  1. Reproduce knowledge and explain (in own words) key theories, models, and tools used in accounting research;
  2. Evaluate to-the-point (i.e., logic, validity, and relevance), interpret and synthesize existing accounting research; and
Replicate (i.e., data collection, analysis, and presentation) archival accounting research (including hands-on experience with econometric software STATA)
Content
The purpose of this course is to advance your understanding of academic research in accounting (financial accounting, auditing, management accounting and corporate governance) and introduces basic methods used in contemporary accounting research. Moreover, it provides students with tools to study and evaluate relevant accounting literature and to conduct empirical research within the framework of the File in Accountancy. We will discuss the genesis of important ideas in the literature and review contemporary developments. The topics include properties and determinants of financial accounting (e.g., earnings response coefficients, accrual models, standards, economic consequences), auditing (audit pricing and audit quality), management accounting and governance. The computer classes intend to provide hands on experience with an econometric package (STATA) and will focus on a careful interpretation of the empirical results obtained. This course is of interest to those contemplating careers in equity research, security analysis, consulting, public accounting, and corporate finance.
