The course focuses on issues of capital market accounting and financial disclosure on an advanced level. The participants should therefore exhibit, apart from analytic abilities, knowledge within the range of these topics. Moreover, a close relation of the topic of your own scientific work to the studied issues is desirable. The number of participants is limited to 25 persons.
