DART Practice Workshop with David Grünberger (FMA)
At the beginning of November, DART students were invited to participate in a practice workshop with David Grünberger, Head of IFRS Enforcement and Accounting of the Austrian Financial Market Authority. Grünberger provided unique insights from his experience as an enforcer, presented the most important enforcement-related topics that are under consideration, and shared his views on the short- and long-term developments in the field of enforcement. Moreover, he talked about the differences between the enforcement systems in Austria and Germany and in other countries. The workshop was particularly beneficial for PhD students, as Grünberger provided useful input for their research projects. Finally, he highlighted an opportunity for their future careers: working as an enforcer enables and takes advantage of the skills that they develop as PhD students.
