Admission Requirements

The course focuses on issues of performance measurement, managerial and financial accounting on an advanced level. The participants should therefore exhibit, apart from analytic abilities, knowledge within the range of these topics. A close relation of the participant’s scientific work to the course content would be desirable. The number of participants is limited.


Course Requirements

This course is lecture based. A list of the course readings will be sent to the participants in time. It will be the student’s responsibility to read the assigned papers prior to the course, and to be ready to engage in discussion with the class. We expect an active cooperation from the participants. Therefore, it is essential to become acquainted with the assigned papers and underlying analytical methods.
