This course is about financial reporting, but not how to report or account for activities. Two key features of the syllabus are the explicit linkage to the research literature and the emphasis on empirical evidence. The adopted approach is largely based on the economics of accounting and finance. The course also aims to introduce students to the theoretical and practical skills required to conduct their own empirical research.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the course students will have:
1. Read widely within the literature concerning the information content of published financial statements and the use of accounting information in contracting
2. Demonstrated an understanding of the key issues presented in the above literature and the implications of these issues for accounting research and practice
3. Developed rudimentary empirical research skills

 

Indicative Assessment

Typical assessment may include, but is not restricted to, class participation, assignment(s), quizzes and examination(s) as appropriate to assess the learning outcomes of the course.
