We are pleased to announce the 3rd Accounting Theory Summer School, hosted by the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University, in conjunction with the Accounting and Economic Society.
The summer school is designed for accounting junior faculty and advanced PhD students who are interested in analytical accounting research or theory-based empirical research. Participants are expected to have completed at least two years of PhD level course works in accounting, including microeconomics and finance.
The program aims to introduce participants to several theoretical frameworks relevant to accounting research, to develop the ability to generate theory-based insights and to apply them to accounting research, to appreciate the connection between accounting research and broader research paradigms in economics and finance, and to stimulate new insights in both analytical and empirical research.
Towards this goal, the program will feature 3 days of lectures by Profs. Itay Goldstein, Thomas Hemmer, Chandra Kanodia, and Qi Chen on a variety of contemporary accounting theories. These lectures will primarily discuss existing theoretical research, their motivation and relevance to accounting research, main intuitions, and implications for future research.
Due to limited space, registration is required with a non-refundable registration fee of $250. The fee will cover lunch, dinner, and break snacks during the summer school. Participants are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses. We encourage you to stay at the JB Duke Hotel as it is located at the Fuqua School.
The summer school is a part of the events organized under the Accounting and Economic Society to promote theory-based research in accounting. Please see AES website for additional events for the year.
