PROGRAMME COORDINATOR & FACULTY

Prof. Frank MOERS, Maastricht University, the Netherlands (Programme Coordinator )
I am a Full Professor of Management Accounting & Control at Maastricht University School of Business and Economics. My field of expertise is performance measurement and incentives and I am especially interested in examining these issues from a broader organizational design perspective. Most of my recent work is at the intersection of accounting and labor economics, examining performance measurement and incentive issues related to promotions and careers in organizations, as well as the importance of supervisors in the process. My research is economics-based, quantitative empirical research, primarily using archival data (both public and proprietary). My research has been published in top accounting and non-accounting journals, including (alphabetically) Academy of Management Journal, Accounting, Organizations and Society, Contemporary Accounting Research, Journal of Accounting Research, and The Accounting Review. I have been involved in the EDEN Doctoral Program as a faculty member since 2001 and have participated in a variety of EDEN Doctoral Seminars when I was a Ph.D. student.

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.
