PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

This EDEN course will focus on quantitative empirical research methods used in management accounting research (archival, experiment, quantitative field study, and survey) and frequently used theoretical perspectives including economic theories (agency, value of information, organizational architecture, and complementarities in organization design), organizational contingency theorizing (selection fit, interaction fit, and system fit), and psychology theories (cognition, motivation, and social). In addition, general concepts related to the design, conduct, and evaluation of theory-consistent empirical research will be presented.

This course will consist of pre-class readings, lectures, discussions, participant-team work groups, and participant-team presentations.  You will realize more benefit from this EDEN if you read the assigned readings before attending it. You should expect that there will be a homework assignment for each evening during this EDEN.

COURSE CREDITS & ECTS

Each participant is expected to keep a free-form learning diary covering the entire process from preparing for the course beforehand through the end of the course on 15 December 2017 (including your post-course thoughts, for example, as you travel home). A condensed version of your learning diary (about 1,000 words) is expected to be sent to Nina Payen by 15 January 2018. Your learning diary should be divided into three sections: Learning before the course, Main learning points during the course, and After the course.  Passing the course is subject to preparing thoroughly for the course, attending all sessions in an active participation mode (the last session on Friday ends at 16:10), and delivering your learning diary on time.

The assigned credit for this is 4 ECTS.

APPLICATION PROCESS

Interested doctoral students should register online (and add the required documents) no later than October 5, 2017. Besides doctoral students, other researchers may participate. The number of participants will be limited to create a stimulating environment.

  • the applicant’s curriculum vitae demonstrating his/her capabilities of doing research ;
