More specifically, the seminar will focus on recent, state-of-the-art research regarding the role of CEOs and CFOs in firms’ financial reporting and their influence on accounting quality. The seminar will also equip you with essential expertise in academic research that will be helpful to you when you subsequently work on your Bachelor (and Master) thesis.
