Accounting Seminars

The Frankfurt School’s Accounting Seminars offer new insights into a broad range of accounting, managerial or economic issues. The seminars are a forum for mostly external researchers to present and discuss their work, employing rigorous methodological approaches, including theoretical models, empirical-archival methods or experimental methods.

The Accounting Seminars usually take place on Wednesdays from 2.00 to 3.30 pm. Before or after the talk, the faculty welcomes the opportunity to meet the speaker individually and exchange ideas. 

The Accounting Department welcomes not only all members of the Frankfurt School community to these seminars, but also external guests.  If you are interested in attending as an external guest, please let us know by e-mail.
