- 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
- 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
