ACC 761 Seminar Accounting & Capital Markets

The course ACC 761 "Seminar Accounting & Capital Markets" introduces students to research in financial accounting and capital markets. Participants learn how to approach a research question scientifically and how to solve problems autonomously. The course also serves as an advanced introduction into academic writing as participants learn to structure and write a scientific thesis. The results of the seminar thesis will be presented and critically discussed within the seminar.

The seminar is a prerequisite for a master thesis at our chair (see ACC 762 for further details). To pass the course a grade equal or superior to "sufficient" (4.0) is required. The grading is composed of the individually written seminar paper, the presentation, and the participation in seminar discussions.

The course is offered every fall term, with the writing time typically between July and October. Please note: detailed information on upcoming seminars is usually published mid-/ end of May.

Please consider that admission to the seminar is competitive and that we usually cannot provide places to all applicants. Furthermore, please note that presence in Mannheim is required for seminar progress-meetings.

Detailed information can be found on the website of the respective seminar.
