SEMINAR OBJECTIVE

This EDEN course for doctoral students deals with issues around conducting case research in management accounting. As this mode of research is nowadays increasingly applied in management accounting studies, particularly in Europe, there is a need to probe into its fundamentals. Regarding them, a series of questions can be raised, for instance the following: What is the role of case research in management accounting? What kind of knowledge can be produced by case research? What abilities should a researcher have when conducting case research? How to actually conduct case research? How to evaluate the outcomes of case research?

In this EDEN seminar, these and other key questions around case-based research in management accounting will be raised and tackled, under the guidance of the international faculty of management accounting focused scholars, having wide experience in conducting and publishing case-based research. The purpose of the course is both to enhance its participants’ awareness of the various opportunities which open when selecting to conduct case research in management accounting and the necessary skills one has to develop in order to be able to seize them.

Case-based research is a many-sided phenomenon - it is not just one single way of conducting empirical research directly in the practical field and with a small number of research subjects. Consequently, a wide range of issues will be addressed during the course, including the methodological foundations of case research, different types of case research, aspects of field-work, analysis of empirical evidence, theory connections of case research, ethics and politics of case research, writing the research report, and publication considerations. The course will explore the various aspects of case-based research with the help of pre-readings, lectures, and discussions.

ECTS

Credits: 4 ECTS are assigned to the seminar.
