Our courses in 2023

Dear all,

Registration is open for the NEW Limperg course Empirical Financial Accounting Research, May 27-31, 2024 at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.

Course team exists of Christof Beuselinck, Erik Peek*, David Veenman*, Arnt Verriest, Jacco Wielhouwer
(* course coordinators).

The purpose of this course is to introduce PhD students to the fundamental topics and seminal studies in empirical financial accounting research. The course should be of interest to a wide range of scholars in accounting. It discusses fundamental topics such as the valuation and contracting roles of accounting, accrual accounting, conservatism, earnings management, disclosure, investor information processing, and non-financial reporting. These topics are discussed based on older seminal studies and more recent applications. By the end of the course, participants should be able to anchor contemporary research questions on the fundamental literature, critically review empirical research in financial accounting, and assess the strengths and weaknesses of commonly used measurements and research designs in the literature. As part of the course assessment, participants are also expected to present assigned papers in class, to conduct a replication exercise of an empirical paper, and to review an academic study. On each course day, the discussion will be guided by two of the professors in the course team.
