Learning Outcomes
Students will be exposed to the scientific approach to describe natural phenomena and introduce tools with which theories can be tested and observations analysed. Examples of work in which shortcomings of robust science appear are part of this journey. This endeavour shall be undertaken through insights into the following four areas of accounting research:
  • Abnormal accruals models; equity valuation
  • Capital markets research; value relevance of accounting numbers; dynamic vs cross-sectional modelling; the OLS estimator and linear regression analysis
  • Statistical activity cost analysis; virtual firms; Monte Carlo; sampling distributions; engineering asset management. Bankruptcy prediction; business performance analyses
