Seven DART students followed the invitation of the University of Zurich to Luzi Hail’s (Wharton) Doctoral Seminar, “Market-Based Research in International Accounting,” in October 2016. The main aim of the seminar was to enhance the participants’ ability to critically evaluate and conduct empirical research in an international context. In particular, the participants learned to appreciate the role of theory in empirical work, to understand research designs in international accounting research, and to conduct data analyses with statistical software. In addition, some of the
participants were provided with the opportunity to present their own research.
