Aktuelle Information

In winter semester 2013/2014 the Institute of Accounting and Control offers an advanced seminar on the topic "Sustainability in Accounting".

Research linking accounting to the emerging concept of sustainability has received continuing attention in academic and professional accounting literature. By integrating sustainability into accounting, some complex questions arise, for example: How to measure sustainability? What are the effects on cost accounting? How to evaluate natural resources? How to address sustainability in annual reports?

During the seminar, students are introduced to scientific methods and learn to independently work on scientific issues. Thereby, they are prepared for writing their bachelor thesis. The results of the seminar paper will be presented and discussed in a block seminar. An active participation in the discussions is an important part of the seminar.

The participants write a seminar paper about an assigned topic in groups of two students. The seminar paper shall contain about 44.400 characters; introduction and conclusion shall be written jointly. The main part of the seminar paper has to be split up into two parts, which will be evaluated individually. Therefore, it is important that the students mark their individual parts such that an individual evaluation is possible.

Both the seminar paper and the presentation shall be in English.

Further information on topics, organisation and application can be found here (pdf/129 kb).
