Doctoral research group Management, Accounting & Finance

The Doctoral Research Group “Managment, Accounting & Finance” offers a high-quality education for future researchers interested in finance and accounting. The programme involves four compulsory modules of the doctoral study programme. These four modules are Philosophy of Science, Scientific Practice/Ethics, Research Methods, and a Research Colloquium. An integral part of the doctoral programme involves the scientific specialization in Finance and Accounting. In addition to the obligatory courses we offer supplementary classes to enhance the PhD experience and provide a kick-start for an academic career. The supplementary classes include research workshops with international guest researchers, PhD conferences involving intensive writing workshops, and a mentoring programme. Our goal is to train doctoral students for research positions at leading universities or advanced research careers in consulting, government or industry. The doctoral students learn to advance theory, develop scientifically sound research designs, and publish their research in international top-tier journals.
