This course provides an introduction to capital-markets research in accounting. The course concentrates on articles that attempt to shed light on the factors underlying firms’ financial reporting choices as well as studies that attempt to demonstrate the economic effects associated with differences in firms’ financial reporting behavior. The focus will be on topics, research design, methodology, and the research process.
The specific course content will vary from year and a detailed course outline will be made available a few weeks prior to course start. We will focus on new/current research but students are strongly encouraged to read “classics” for background
