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.

The Brown Bag seminars at Frankfurt School serve as a platform for internal and external researchers to present and discuss their research ideally in a stage of “work in progress”. The Brown Bag seminars are as a rule on Mondays and Thursdays at lunchtime from 12:35 until 13:20 p.m., so that the event will not interfere with teaching obligations or lectures. The presentations last between 30 and 45 minutes.
The remaining time can be used for questions and discussion.
