For the seventh time in a row, the IMC was represented at the prestigious Colloquium for Doctoral Students, organized in conjunction with the Annual Congress of the European Accounting Association (EAA). While Leona Wiegmann presented her paper “Resistance to (Enable) Change – Glocalization of Management Accounting Practices as Dynamic and Iterative Process” in the Social & Organisational Accounting track, Maximilian Margolin spoke on “Risk-Neutral Principals and Not-So-Risk-Averse Agents: The Role of Core Self-Evaluation for Performance Measurement under Risk” in the Management Accounting & Control track.
The EAA Doctoral Colloquium provides an opportunity for doctoral students to present their work-in-progress to a distinguished academic panel. Twelve international faculty members, including Chris Chapman, Sally Widener, and Martin Messner, provided valuable feedback on subject, methodology and results. Only 36 doctoral students were invited to attend the Colloquium, which is equivalent to an acceptance rate of merely 33%. In total, eleven doctoral students of the IMC have now presented their papers since 2008.
The 30th EAA Doctoral Colloquium was held at the University of Tartu, Estonia, from 17 to 20 May in the run-up to the 37th annual meeting of the European Accounting Association which took place from 21 to 23 May in Tallinn. The Congress of the EAA was opened to more than 1000 delegates and 725 papers, including 114 accepted submissions from management accounting scholars and 113 papers from German scholars on all topics.
