Seminars in Accounting

Course Number: 47710

In this course, we will learn how to be better scientists, both in our theoretical and our empirical investigations. We will explore the role empirical content, or informative content plays in scientific examination of behavior in finance and accounting research. We will develop tools to analyze theory for its validity and internal consistency, the logical and empirical elements of models (modeling tools vs. modeling primitives), the ways in which models compare to the existing models and tests in the literature, and the proper way to test models empirically.
