In this workshop, the discussions cover accounting research and accounting research papers dealing with current topics in this field, and are prepared for the workshop by faculty, students, and invited guests. Meetings are open to all interested faculty members, as well as to MBA and PhD students.

The 2020–21 Accounting Research Workshop organizers are Booth professors Rimmy Tomy and Jonathan Bonham. If you have any questions about the schedule, please email Gen Hensley or call her at 773.702.7460.

When possible, links to the workshop papers are posted to this page for printing. Occasionally, speakers opt not to circulate their papers. Therefore, the link will be unavailable.

We have been closely monitoring the evolving situation with COVID-19 and have decided, in accordance with university guidance and for the safety of our community, to hold the Spring Quarter workshops via Zoom. We will email the link for each seminar when it is available. Presenters who have opted out of the online video option will be rescheduled.
