Prof. Frank Moers, Maastricht University, the Netherlands - 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.
Prof. David Bedford, University of Technology Sydney, Australia - David Bedford is a Professor at UTS Business School in the Accounting Discipline, which he joined in 2005. David has published in several leading international academic journals, including Accounting, Organizations and Society, Management Accounting Research, and Journal of Management Accounting Research. David’s research focuses on performance measurement systems and management control. Specifically, he has investigated the use of performance measurement systems in firms pursuing different types of innovation, the performance implications of using combinations of management controls in different firm contexts, and the use of management controls in private equity firms. David coordinates and lectures in the subjects Management Planning and Control, Accounting Information Systems, and Data Analytics for Decision Making. He is often cited as a top undergraduate lecturer and regularly appears in the UTS Business School postgraduate teaching merit list.
Prof. Victor Maas, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands - Victor Maas has earned his PhD at the University of Amsterdam in 2007, and worked at Erasmus University Rotterdam before returning to Amsterdam as full professor in 2014. He teaches financial accounting, management accounting, judgment and decision making, and experimental research methods in undergraduate, graduate, and executive programs. In his research, he investigates how economic, cognitive, and social factors jointly determine the behavior of accountants, employees, and managers. His main research interests include discretionary performance evaluation processes and strategic and dysfunctional behavior in organizations.
Some testimonials from students who participated in the previous editions:
This EDEN course will focus on quantitative empirical research in management accounting. A variety of quantitative empirical research approaches exist when considering the possible theoretical perspectives and research methods that can be applied to the study of management accounting. In consequence, this course will address frequently used theoretical perspectives including economic theories (agency, organizational architecture, and complementarities in organization design), organizational contingency theorizing (selection fit, interaction fit, and system fit), and psychology theories (cognition, motivation, and social) and a variety of research methods (archival, experimental, quantitative field study, and survey).
Full attendance is mandatory.
