During the introductory class, participants learn the fundamentals of conducting experimental research in management accounting. Among other things, the method is presented, the pros and cons of experimental research are discussed, the validity framework is introduced, and general design choices are explained.
The workshop encompasses both published work and working papers on recent topics in experimental management accounting research. The highly interactive course provides a deep insight into the role of theory in experimental research in management accounting and guidelines on how to test the theory. Further, it offers participants the opportunity to present work in progress (e.g., proposals) to obtain early feedback from fellow students and experienced faculty. On their last day, workshop participants attend the Experimental Research in Management Accounting Conference where a selected number of papers is presented and discussed (www.exrima.org). The workshop and conference environment offers several opportunities to network with both other participants and the faculty.https://www.exrima.org/de/summerschool
