2002-2003 Accounting Seminars

The Accounting Division seminar series consists of weekly presentations by eminent academics, prospective faculty members and the division's own faculty members. Unless otherwise noted, seminars are held on Fridays at 1:30 p.m in 333 Uris. In most years, spring semester seminars are recruiting sessions featuring candidates for faculty positions.

In addition, the division invites distinguished scholars to our annual Burton Workshop.
