Coronavirus Updates

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 2023–24 Accounting Research Workshop organizers are Booth professors Charlie McClure and Maxi Muhn. 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.

In accordance with university guidance, we will be holding our workshops in dual modality.  We will email the link for each seminar when it is available.
