PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

This seminar of the EDEN-programme in accounting is devoted to analytical accounting research. Accounting issues are inherently complex, and analytical models are important tools to structure the research process and derive powerful results. Models are simplified structures which allow a focus on the main economic forces that govern the issue at stake. Over the last years, they have been used to analyze a wide variety of problems within financial and managerial accounting. The models provide convenient structures to analyze decision-making and stewardship uses of accounting information, incentive systems, budgeting, and interorganizational relationships, as well as interactions between accounting information and markets.

The objective of the seminar is to study the structures of analytical models typically used in accounting research. It aims at improving the skills for understanding such research, and designing analytical models in accounting. Various types of models, including agency models, signaling and partial equilibrium models, are discussed.
